Team America Film Trend On Twitter
December 19, 2011 by staff
Team America Film Trend On Twitter, Team America: World Police, produced by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, was arguably responsible for introducing many people to the North Korean dictator for the first time.
The 2004 comedy film, which grossed more than $50 million (£32 million) worldwide at the box office, centres on “Team America,” an international police force that fights t*rror*sm.
The 69 year-old, who died from a heart attack on a train on Saturday, was one of the main characters in the puppet movie. On Monday, the film enjoyed a somewhat unusual resurgence in popularity in the wake of his death.
It depicts Kim as an evil dictator attempting to conquer the world while openly mocking his limited English. He was featured as a singing dictator who was lonely – or “ronrey” – while living in his large opulent palace.
Stone, 40, and Parker, 42, also wrote the screenplay and supplied voices of many of the characters to the cult movie. Parker voiced Kim’s voice. Neither have commented about the death.
“When the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong II, joins a group of pacifist actors and actresses with the intention of using weapons of massive destruction, the Team America (team) tries to avoid the destruction of the world,” says its page on IMDb, the internet movie database.
In the hours after his death was announced on North Korean State Television on Monday, several references to the film started “trending” on Twitter, indicating that they were the most discussed terms on the micro-blogging site.
Among the popular phrases included “Team America”, “Hans Brix” – in reference to another character, the former UN Weapons Inspector Hans Blix, who was said by Jong-il that he was “breaking my —-s” – and “So Ronery”.
