DVDs of “The Interview” Have Indeed Been Dropped Into North Korea via Balloons
(via The Guardian)
The plan hatched just after The Interview finally hit theaters has been carried out.
Lee Min-bok who defected from North Korea and now has become an activist against the regime used helium balloons to release thousands of copies of The Interview on DVD and pamphlets. Of course, this lead to North Korean forces attempting to shoot down some of the balloons.
We’re pretty sure no other comedy film in history can or potentially will ever be able to claim that copies of the film were distributed via balloon as a tactic in a “cold war” of sorts.
Hopefully, DVD players aren’t being confiscated in Pyongyang right now.
