N. Korea video depicting missile attack against U.S. looks familiar to gamers

Read/see the whole thing at Malkin:

Sure enough:

The video isn’t from North Korea’s assuredly excellent special effects team, rather it’s taken directly from a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 cutscene. You can’t make this stuff up.

In the game, the US comes under attack by an angry Russia during what amounts to World War III, hence Manhattan being under fire by a barrage of missiles. But in the North Korean video, they’re taking all the credit.
