THE escalating pop viral conflict between North and South Korea could trigger nuclear war, it has been claimed.
Kim Jong Un has responded angrily to the success of South Korea’s ‘Gangnam Style’, ordering the Youtube release of North Korea’s music video Structured Movement Sequence Devoted To The Glory Of The Motherland And Perfect For Leisure Period.
However the video lacks the infectious hook of Gangnam Style, featuring a soldier repeatedly shouting ‘You must labour to the point of exhaustion!’ over a backdrop of tanks.
Kim Jong Un said: “Failure to rate or share this video will be considered an indirect act of hostility. Our warheads are primed and will automatically launch in the event that it gets less than three hundred million likes.”
Experts fear South Korea may retaliate with an effortlessly catchy, instantly viral pop hit.
International affairs analyst Tom Logan said: “The South Korean government is working with Psy on a new song called ‘Snakey Jakey’.
“I’ve only seen a five-second test clip but it’s been ricocheting around my mind ever since. Kim Jong Un will be hearing it in his sleep.
“Because of its catchiness and nifty ‘snake hands’ dance, the Doomsday Clock now stands at eight seconds to twelve.”
A US spokesman said: “North Korea cannot bully the world into liking or sharing a web video.
“The right to call a Youtube clip ‘gay’ is a cornerstone of democracy.”
