Pyongyang Express Revealed As A Fake

Pyongyang Express Revealed As A Fake

We don't like people truckin' with our emotions and playing us for fools, but it appears Pyongyang Express, the North Korean truck that seemed kind of fake, IS fake! Arg. The truck turns out to be just a promotion for a video game called Homefront, where players actually aren't respecting North Korean cooking and the juche spirit, but killing the entire North Korean Army as it invades the U.S. Even though this tasteless/shameless scheme pulled the wool over many a blogger's eye and basely used a nation in which people are starving for promotion, we're stuck with the truck until the launch of the violent game in 2011. Fool us once, and shame on you Pyongyang Express, but fool us twice and...well, just go screw yourselves.

What do you think? Is this a new low in using trucks to market a corporate product? Let us know your thoughts in our comments.
