North Korea's First Beer Commercial!

Whoa. The soundtrack reminds me of a vintage 1980's Nintendo game. Pure Gold.

From Applied Arts:
"Named after a river that runs through the centre of the country’s capital, Pyongyang, Tedonggang beer doesn’t get a lot of competition on North Korean television, where ads are scarce. The commercial promises that the beer will help to reduce stress and “will be a familiar part of our lives.” Fair enough. Reviews of the brew, both bottled and draft, are mixed."
