Apparently Kim sees nothing funny about a plot line that has a bumbling American talk-show host and his producer, played by James Franco and Seth Rogen, accepting a CIA proposal to turn their trip to North Korea to interview Kim into a hit, so to speak.
The movie, titled “The Interview,” isn’t set to debut on world screens until this fall. But a trailer for the film has been posted on Youtube, prompting a gush of invective from the Pyongyang regime.
Calling the movie “the most blatant act of terrorism and war [that] will absolutely not be tolerated,” the North Korean government said in a statement that “if the US administration allows and defends the showing of the film, a merciless countermeasure will be taken.”
A YouTube trailer?
Well, that's all you need to know, really. If North Korea strikes, we'll have to put James Franco and Seth Rogen in jail. Let's hope they have probation terms we can scrutinize.
Kim Jong Un is yet another reason God gave America JDAMs.
And really, we owed The Un some payback after his last video.
