To put a different spin on a line from Forrest Gump, "North Korea is like a box of chocolate; you never know what you're gonna get."
Sometimes you get a majestic photo like this:
Or a light hearted moment like this:
Or a sweet, romantic moment like this:
But as peculiar as North Korea can be, it's also a hardline, defiant regime - as this video reinforces.
Let's just say it's bizarre, twisted and sinister, in a hokey kind of way.
The video starts out with a young North Korean man sleeping, as a piano version of 'We Are The World' plays in the background.
From there, the man dreams that he is launched into space by the same kind of rocket North Korea successfully tested in December.
As his space shuttle circles the earth, he passes over Korea and sees that it has been joyfully re-unified.
From there, the American flag appears, followed by images of a city under attack with its high-rise buildings on fire or destroyed.
It looks similar to the 9/11 attacks on New York.
Along the way, a caption pops up that says, as translated by AFP...
"Somewhere in the United States black clouds of smoke are billowing. It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself."
Next comes an explosion, followed by a shower of sparkles.
By the end of the video, the young man is still asleep as a caption says that his dream will "surely come true."
"Despite attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us... never will anyone be able to stop the people marching towards a final victory."
The video was posted by Uriminzokkiri, North Korea's official website. It emerged as North Korea is said to be preparing for more rocket tests, to defy the United Nations.
Today, South Korea's ambassador to the UN said another North Korean test "seems to be imminent."
He said there are "very busy activities" taking place at North Korea's nuclear test site, and "everybody's watching."
After the last test in December, the UN Security Council toughened its sanctions on North Korea and warned the government it would face "significant action" if it carried out another test.
The Security Council, including North Korea's ally China, also demanded that North Korea give up its nuclear program.
The sanctions target North Korean companies and government agencies, including its space agency.
The goal is to stop North Korea from testing or using nuclear and ballistic missile technology, and keep it from importing or exporting nuclear material.
In the event of another test, South Korea's ambassador said he expects the Security Council to take "very firm and strong measures" against the North.
