Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel aired a video Wednesday night of individuals on Hollywood Boulevard congratulating North Korea on its claim of a “successful” hydrogen bomb test.
“The idea of North Korea having a hydrogen bomb would be somewhat alarming to those of us who are here on the west coast,” Kimmel said before showing the clip.
It was not clear if the people interviewed by Kimmel’s crew were replying with sarcastic answers or simply ignorant of the issue, but all the ones shown offered congratulations to the communist country and its dictator.
“That’s really good,” one woman said with a laugh. “Congratulations North Korea! Finally, I mean, it’s about time.”
“You know, I think that if you do believe that one day — dreams can come true,” another said.
“If you believe you can do it, then you can achieve it,” commented another.
“Congratulations Kim Jong-un on everything you’ve done. You’ve done a really good job. Keep it up, stay safe, good work,” one more person added.
