North Korean charity cake is the only thing that gets me out of my tent in the morning anymore.

What's wrong with snow-coffee?

Totally confusing America with Canada.

Plus Bird Tuesday is pretty much all we live for.

EvilHomer - 2013-03-12

How accurate is the translation?

I'm not calling shenanigans, but I find it hard to believe that the North Koreans know about our Snow Trucks. We spend billion a year on counterintelligence operations to suppress foreign awareness of the Snow Trucks, and you want me to believe that Korean journalists STILL managed to smuggle footage out of the country?

Cena_mark - 2013-03-12

Its so funny it could be fake, but sadly I don't think it is. I really think North Korean propaganda must go on and on about Americans having nothing but snow to eat to make their people feel good.

jreid - 2013-03-13

This video has been making rounds and it depresses the hell out of me to see how many people think it's real.

A bit of actual translation comparison here:

but seriously, just listen to what he's saying - it's ridiculous.

RocketBlender - 2013-03-13

I'm expecting they didn't actually call the snow and birds 'yummy', but since none of the footage is all that flattering, I don't think it's completely inaccurate, either.

jreid, the fact that it's fake is fine and all, but don't come with this "It depresses me that people think this is real, come on guys listen to what he's saying it's ridiculous" bullshit. We're talking about North Korea here: "Kim Jong Il never played golf but when he did he only scored hole-in-ones", "we found the the cave of the magical unicor", "our sacred God-leader was born on a mountaintop and double rainbows shined in the sky", THAT Norh Korea.

Damn. Here I was, hoping the Koreans had hired Muhammad al-Sahhaf.

So, I take it Koreans are terrified of snow?

Doomstein - 2013-03-13

Snow and electric fans.

I shit you not.

Electric fans.

North Korean Propganda or FOX News game

James Woods - 2013-03-13

Canadians also think America is like this.

Oscar Wildcat - 2013-03-13

Americans think even stranger things about their country than North Koreans.

Hooker - 2013-03-13

So, is the point of this to make the North Korean population irate that American squalor beats the hell out of theirs?

James Woods - 2013-03-13

I think it's meant to say the grass is browner on the other side. Why eat american grass, when you can eat Best Korea's grass?

chumbucket - 2013-03-13

I have my snow coffee everyday but catching birds has been a challenge.

James Woods - 2013-03-13

I love me a steamy cup of snow.

Doomstein - 2013-03-13

I don't have the energy to catch birds anymore.

I shoot up heroin that's been cut with melted snow and then its off to my tent to sleep on duffle bags full of my dead friends.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious - 2013-03-13

Well that settles it, time to seek refuge in North Korea.

memedumpster - 2013-03-13

Whatever, North Korea, we still have more British aid workers taking care of OUR poor than you do yours, so we win.

Tasso - 2013-03-14

So according to North Korea, America is a bitter land where the poor rot in the streets beneath the faded monuments of former glories, phones aren't hooked up, and just a cup of coffee is a luxury?

They probably should have made this less reflective of, you know, North Korea.

Syd Midnight - 2013-03-15

It lets you know just how awful it is there, that they have to make up shit about how badly America treats its poor to try and stop their citizens from wanting to flee here.

dairyqueenlatifah - 2013-03-15

The English dub over, while fake when talking about the snow coffee and all the birds being eaten, is actually the same in it's jist and it's sheer level of ridiculousness. The video really is trying to portray America as a wasteland where everyone is miserable and starving in the streets, and how we all wish we could be as lucky North Koreans are to live in their luxurious paradise.

It's not the first time they've made this sort of video either.

Jet Bin Fever - 2013-03-17

This video didn't need an 'improved' dub. They should just accurately subbed the original. It was good enough.
