Thanks to the Independent for drawing our attention to this one - a wiley youtube prankster has dubbed commentary taken from a report on a parade in North Korea's Pyongyang over footage of Britain's annual Trooping of the Colour. As it turns out, the less than fawning report from North Korea, which describes the highly choreographed parade as 'cult like', fits quite neatly when laid over footage of Elizabeth II (God bless yer marm) grimacing through the pageantry and pomp of the Trooping of the Colour.
Naturally, our unelected monarch, who keeps a vice like grip on power, land and patronage, has absolutely nothing in common with North Korea's unelected leader, who keeps a vice like grip on power, land and patronage. So the coincidence is simply bizarre.
