American Rappers Want to Film a Music Video in North Korea

North Korea, one of the world’s leading pariah states, is a goofy place.  So why would a couple of unknown American rappers want to shoot a music video there?  I think we’ve just answered that question, haven’t we?

Pacman and Peso, a duo from DC, are off to North Korea this weekend.  Not only have they never done a music video before, they’ve never even been on a plane in their lives.  They’ll also visit Beijing (the only real gateway to North Korea for foreigners) and Ulan Baator, Mongolia.  This is a helluva first trip.

The goal is to film the first foreign music video in the DPRK.  Apparently, this has already been cleared by Kim Jong-Un’s minions.

The trip is being funded by a Kickstarter program which raised $10,000, much of which came from a Wall Street hedge fund manager.  

Good luck, dudes.  Can’t wait to see the results.  Nice ambition, too.
