New North Korea Propaganda Video Set to Oblivion Soundtrack

North Korea's propaganda wing must have a pretty heinous music library to draw on. The DPRK released another video game-influenced video, but instead of footage from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, this time they're using music from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This will probably get taken down quickly so watch while you can!

It's easy to see this as an obvious threat (or an attempt at one), even without the text providing some context. But just in case, here's a translation, provided by North Korea

"Words spoken by the United States, a country that uses the law of jungle as the law of survival for fitness, is meaningless. As a result, North Korea's high level nuclear test conducted against American imperialist invaders is a nuclear deterrent that protects our sovereignty."

I imagine either there's a big gaming fan behind these videos, or, the editor happened to be searching through iTunes, and thought anything with "Oblivion" in the title track would be fitting for a short propaganda video about nuclear detonation. That, or someone's a little upset he didn't get the latest Skyrim DLC.

This new propaganda video comes a day after a North Korean envoy warned South Korea of its "final destruction" during a UN conference on disarmament. North Korea reported its third nuclear underground test in the last seven years took place last week.
