North Korea May Day Observations
Notice the search lights within the panorama behind the news broadcasters. A nice touch.
It took the regime six days to release their May Day video. About one day less than it takes to fuel a North Korean missile.
The first tug-of-war is between the red team and the red team.
At 3:46 you will see the overweight North Korean in the green moo-moo.
Then more propaganda. More tug-of-war. Some volleyball. Then some run-for-the-border races. More uneaten flowers left at dull monuments. More 'celebration' games. More exercises in formation. And last, a big concert.
Missing: 1) The chubby dictator doesn't make an appearance. Remember, May Day is a celebration of the worker, by the worker. 2) Smiles. 3) Alec Baldwin. 4) The May Day celebrations at the Gulags where 150-300 thousand North Koreans eat bugs and rats to survive.
