North Korea's anti-American video pulled from YouTube for Modern Warfare 3 copyright infringement

North Korea's "Dream" video, a poorly edited anti-American propaganda film, has been removed from YouTube following a copyright infringement filed by Activision. Apparently the video, which showed the dream of a young man soaring through space over a unified Korea, contained copyright footage of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

It should've been removed for the poor rendition of the 1985 charity single We Are The World accompanying the 1980s-like editing. Nevertheless, it was discovered that the footage showing a burning city similar to New York with an American flag flying was actually taken from Activision's popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, released back in 2011. 

The Korean subtitle read: "Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing. It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself."

Come on, North Korea. At least try to stay up-to-date with your propaganda videos. Where's the Black Ops 2 footage!? The video has since been removed from the country's official Pyongyang YouTube channel, but you can still find numerous copies of it online.

Oh, North Korea. You've got to admit they do try so hard. It's almost adorable. I suggest they try hiring Spielberg for their next film. Or maybe Lucas, he isn't busy anymore now that he sold the Star Wars franchise to Disney, and I hear he LOVES CGI.
