ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Ain't no party like a Pyongyang party, 'cause a Pyongyang party is ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY. Perhaps all those synchronized marching demonstrations for Kim Jong-Il were because he just wanted to get down.

Diggin´the sabre ladies in miniskirts.
You beat me to it, though I believe it may just be the yellow fever speaking.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps9cPhzLf1E , if you want more sabre ladies. Video’s not as good quality, though. You’re welcome :)
Needs metal. Not… whatever the hell that music is.
Metal and more sabre ladies.
It’s like that commercial with the dancing robots. Minus the hamsters and Kia.
It’s the same song by LMFAO (party rock)
It’s disturbing when goose stepping looks like fun.
NK is OK – I’m so going! Looks like Vegas, only with…. um… austerity measures!
What happens in North Korea, stays in North Korea.
And never, ever leaves
Everyday I’m engagin’ in spontaneous demonstrations of proletarian joy…
Time for Party!
Next Audio / Video Mashup Suggestion:
At 2:38 and 2:44, for those who don’t know, that’s NOT a video screen in the back ground. Those displays are all generated by PEOPLE holding up placards.
Here’s another video of a different show at the same arena:
There’s a Lovecraftian scale of horror and awe at those displays, knowing that they are comprised of thousands cards being held and changed in synch by people.
It would be a helluva hack…
North Korea, everything sunny all the time, always, good time, beach party. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhohteHuyPM
not view-able here in germany – what sinister plot is this ?!?!?
does our GEMA (semi-federal company for the management of copyright blah)
transfer invisible monies to north korea??!!
we might be on to something here :)
The video is blocked because of the soundtrack, which is definitely not North Korean.
My friend and I were discussing NK last night.
“What makes people live in a place like that?”
“No, why do they believe all that ridiculous stuff.”
“I’m pretty sure the answer is still guns.”
“Not state media?”
“Well, why is there only STATE media?”
“G.. oh, I see what you did there..”
Did Kim Jong Ill have a secret desire to work at Jiffy Lube, or Grease Monkey?
Thank you for helping me discover my fetish for ladies dancing with sabres.
Oh dear lawd that was funny. I’m going to miss stuff like this after SOPA destroys stuff like this.
“Everyday I’m SUFFERING…”
Dictators have also been known for their freestyle gangsta rap.
Way to check out that display kitchen!
They probably literally had a guy sitting under the cupboard turning a handpump when glorious leader fliped the people’s switch.
The bouncing goose stepping provides the honourable party leaders with beneficial and rewarding optical stimulation when the female soldiers parade past their grandstand.
The accompanying ‘music’ score is UnNorth Korean.
Amazing choreography. North Korea would definitely win Olympic Gold for synchronized swimming
watch the 2004 film “State of Mind” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_State_of_Mind
I could have sworn that this was something Cyriak had animated.
If you look at the crowd at 2:50 there are two CIA agents disguised as awkward white dudes in aviator sunglasses in the crowd.
Maybe this is just me being way too uptight about things, but I can’t enjoy any of these clever videos about North Korea. They would be funny, it’s not a lack of creativity on the maker’s behalf.
It’s more that those people behave in such a mock-able way because they are absolutely helpless to a mad man’s rule. Even in death he controls them with life-long programmed fear. They have limited access to any real knowledge and live in dreadful, bleak conditions.
Anyway, that’s my two cents. These poor people.
