Not content with images of President Obama in a ball of fire, North Korea's propaganda arm decided to spice up its latest YouTube video the only way it knows how: with video games.

In the above clip, shoved out by North Korean propaganda branch Uriminzokkiri, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion theme plays over fiery rhetoric.

"Words spoken by the United States, a country that uses the law of jungle as the law of survival for fitness, is meaningless," the video's text reads (via Global Dispatch).

"As a result, North Korea's high level nuclear test conducted against American imperialist invaders is a nuclear deterrent that protects our sovereignty."

Earlier this month, Uriminzokkiri produced another propaganda video, which, Kotaku pointed out, used images from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Activision had YouTube take down the video over an obvious copyright claim, North Korea Tech reports. Don't be surprised if the same fate awaits the YouTube version of this clip.

Seems like there's someone at Uriminzokkiri, who not only really hates America, but really loves American video games. Just another example of video games bringing people together, and brain-washing regimes tearing them apart.
