Fearing Class Warfare, North Korea Places Nationwide Ban on Robot-Themed Girls Parody Video

Posted: Updated:

North Korea, which has always been a place of equality and freedom, fears all may be lost, thanks to a new sketch comedy video that has surfaced early this week. The video depicts a parody of HBO's Girls, replacing the girls with robots in a comedic fashion. Kim Jong-Un, the country's fearless leader, deems the video inappropriate, and fears it will cause an uprising of the lower class.

The video, "Robots", was first found by a local man who wanted to remain nameless out of fear of "being thrown in the pit." He first watched the video on a iPhone . He claims a tourist who said she "accidently went to the wrong Korea" dropped the phone while sprinting to a
Demilitarized Zone.

Sources claim that the local was trying to Google, "What is love?" when the iPhone autocorrected it to "Lena Dunham". A video appeared, a sketch comedy video done by NYC-based group, Dinner For One. The laughter it inspired caused the local to feel something he never could have thought possible in his bleak life: happiness.

"It was so poignant and original!" explained the North Korean local, "usually people just do a "Girls" parody that focuses on the weird sex scenes, subdued acting style, or the obvious aspects of all the characters being upper class. But this video took a more absurdist approach that was refreshing to see and just flat out made me laugh until I forgot I lived in North Korea".

As the parody sketch grew in mass popularity, villagers re-enact the video as an offering to the Heavens, in hopes that the gods will give them a bountiful fall's harvest. Many Koreans are starting their own sketch comedy troupes, and putting on shows with no cover charges at bars with a stage in the back room.

A North Korean official held a press conference in which he claimed, " This video must not be seen in any more villages. We've already had a protest break out last week when we announced we were lowering the legal age of marriage to 'whatever Kim Jong-Un feels like'. This protest wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for that incredibly well shot sketch comedy video that veers away from the typical 'Girls' parody".

Kim Jong-Un declared to the press, "The U.S. must stop playing god. Thanks to the sudden appearance of this video I am I'm being forced to see my brother's sketch group, "Boner Patrol," performed at UCB East Asia. This American sketch comedy group has caused me nothing but misery; I hate them to death. Also, it is crazy that they don't have representation,they seemed so seasoned!".
