(RNN) – A video posted to YouTube by North Korea shows a man dreaming of space exploration and the nuclear destruction of a U.S. city that resembles New York.

The video opens with a boy sleeping next to a camera, as an instrumental version of We Are the World segues into dreams of space exploration, a unified Korea peninsula and the bombing of a U.S. city.

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," captions say in the video, according to The Telegraph. "It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself."

However, Forbes reports the footage of the bombing is lifted from the video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III.

North Korea's official website Uriminzokkiri posted the video Saturday, and it has more than 60,000 views.

The country's leaders said they soon will begin nuclear testing. North Korea successfully launched a long-rage rocket in December 2012, which resulted in more sanctions by the United Nations.

The launch was in violation of U.N. resolutions banning the country from missile or nuclear technology that were put in place after controlled nuclear detonations in 2006 and 2009.

South Korea and U.S. forces began joint military drills Monday.
