Note that the video image copied from YouTube clearly identifies the video as comedy.

Within an hour of posting the Video of the Day, GEI News posted the following article under the headline "Our Video of the Day On North Korea is a Fake":

Econintersect: According to the Huffington Post, our Video of the Day on North Korea is a fake.

The video, titled "How Americans Live Today," features an English voiceover purportedly translating the original Korean narration. The phony translation describes hyperbolic scenes of Americans being forced to live in tents and eating melted snow in order to survive. The man behind the farce? British travel writer Alun Hill, who doesn't speak a word of Korean.

Here is the YouTube page for the video:
