N Korean anime
This, ladies and gentlemen, is a real gem. Please take with a pinch of salt, remember that there are 2 sides to every coin and that the political agenda of a government do not necesarily reflect the feelings of a nation.
If you like Team America hopefully you might find this at least a little amusing
wow! thats really amazing... no need for the disclaimer!
what's so cool about Anti-American propaganda? I think this sucks rat dick. You think America is bad try living in North korea for a year I dare you.
ooh, touchy! Yeah, it is an appalling animation. And I guess it is going to upset a few American patriots – But its worth it just to see if anyone is daft enough to get upset by a piece of clumsy propaganda. But let us get back to music videos eh?
Yeah well whats sad to me is that its targeted to kids. It makes me feel like a missles going to hit L.A. in like 4.2 seconds
biccamera you are truley ignorant. Don't you know that almost every large scale bloody confilct of the 20th centuary was preceeded by propaganda? And what makes you think that you need to be a true blue patriot to be bothered by such cowardly propaganda?
rhino, if you're so upset by propaganda, then make sure you never pay attention to any of the news that comes out of this country. Albeit the swearing, this here is no different.
Good grief Rhino, I was trying to defuse this particular piece of crud, rather than get into a debate about propaganda, especially as your earlier comment was just an exercise in mud slinging and as sophisticated as that animation. Yeah, North Korea must be one of the most terrible places to live in the world with a population fed this kind of crap from cradle to grave, not because they want to start a war with the US, but because their population has to be scared shitless of a perceived enemy (is this sounding familiar?) The propaganda WE are fed on the news networks is a little subtler, but propaganda none the less. Music videos, anyone?
Wow...you are really comparing freedom of speech and press to a fully intergrated system of propaganda from cradle to grave. Let me guess you voted for John Kerry...Looks like you fell for the propaganda son.
rhino, freedom of speech includes the right to say F*ing USA. End of story. Now back to music videos, i agree.
Here you will find a trailer for a documentary about a giant North Korean acrobatic performance, and the music video for Faithless that re-edits it.
Oh, and some really slick animated propaganda....
It is sort of a dirty word, but propaganda is just "material disseminated by the advocates or opponents of a doctrine or cause." Does anyone here think it is possible to craft something that is really impartial?
listen carefully to the lyrics to understand the message.
i voted for jon stewart.... oops ..wait... im not amerikkkan
You got me! I’m not American, had I been, I would not have voted for Kerry or that other monkey. Strange that the majority thought that having Kerry and Bush in an election constituted a ‘choice’. It’s like choosing between a Big Mac and a Whopper when I’d rather have salad.
Damn europeans...you hate amercia yet you devour our culture. You hate our politics yet you all want to live here.
Yeah, our liberal media is pretty popular ;)
rhino, you're right! europeans have a critical eye, yet they are open minded. Maybe we could learn a thing or two from them??
Very interesting blog. Alot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definately interested in this one. Just thought that I would post and let you know.
