Okay, so they didn’t copy it so much as just use a slightly different version of the same template. But still it made Wired news, which I find hilarious.
From The Wired.com Article:
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has a Flash-heavy official webpage in English, to instruct the curious about the peculiar ways of its homebrewed “Juche” ideology (“…the masters of the revolution and construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive force of the revolution and construction…”). Not a bad look — functional, elegant — and certainly a step up from the GeoCities-esque design of its official news agency.
But, as it turns out, it’s an amateurish look. North Korea’s using a webpage template that costs $15.
Not exactly a web presence that screams, “We’re an elite nuclear power that must be respected.”
This has had me laughing non-stop the last couple days and I just had to share it. Hope you enjoy!
