Transcription of Trump's cheezy "In A World" movie trailer for North Korean summit

By Spocko

Two men. Two leaders. One crappy movie trailer.

Here is the video link on Facebook for those who want to see the high res version.

My friend Dan Mcenroe, a brilliant video production guy in Sweden, saw this live at about 1:30 am California  time. He said,
"They cut a fucking TRAILER for the summit. I'm dead serious. They're showing it on big screens to the media. It's crazy. They actually got a trailer voice guy who says shit like, "Destiny Pictures presents..." and, "...featuring Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un." At one point they say something like, "Two men, two LEADERS have two paths before them," and show a montage of nuclear missiles launching followed by a montage of kids on a playground and shit. Then trailer voice guy intones, "Which path will they choose?" This is like an SNL digital short. My head is spinning." 

I transcribed the entire 4 minute piece.

Seven billion people inhabit planet Earth. Of those people alive today only a small number will leave a lasting impact. And only the very few will make decisions or take actions that will renew their homeland and change the course of history. History may appear to repeat itself for generations, cycles that never seem to end. There have been times of relative peace and times of great tension. While this cycle repeats, the light of prosperity and innovation has burned bright for most of the world. History is always evolving and there comes a time when only a few are called upon to make a difference. But the question is, "What difference will the few make? The past doesn't have to be the future. Out of the darkness can come the light and the light of hope can burn bright.

What if a people that share a common and rich heritage can find a common future? Their story is well known. But what will be their sequel? Destiny Pictures presents a story of opportunity. A new story, a new beginning. One of peace. Two men. Two leaders. One destiny. A story about a special moment in time when a man is presented with one chance that may never be repeated. What will he choose? To show vision and leadership? Or not?

There can only be two results. One of moving back. Or one of moving forward. A new world can begin today. One of friendship, respect and good will. Be part of that world where the doors of opportunity are ready to be open. Investment from around the world, where you can have medical breakthroughs and an abundant resources. Innovative technology and new discoveries. What if? Can history be changed? Will the world embrace this change?  And when could this moment in history begin? It comes down to a choice on this day, in this time, at this moment. The world will be watching, listening, anticipating, hoping. Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of the new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen? A great life? Or more isolation? Which path will be chosen? Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un. In a meeting to remake history. To shine in the sun. One moment, one choice. What if? The future remains to be written.

What will he choose? To show vision and leadership? Or not?

As Dan said, this is a really crappy video production. It looks like it was thrown together quickly. They used stock video images and generic music.

The script is designed to appeal to an audience of two. Trump and Kim Jong Un. (Trump showed him this video on an iPad.)  It is important to understand why this script was written. It was designed to flatter Trump.

When something like this comes out of the Trump White House it tells you something about how Trump wants the world to see him. He sees himself as that "one man" who is remaking history.
He is shining in the sun.

Trump believes he is the hero the whole world is watching and listening to.

I think the video will work on Kim, because it is designed for Trump, a wanna be dictator. It includes all the flattering that insecure men need.

We all saw the photo that Merkel's office sent out with Trump sitting and everyone else standing over him.  But what you might not have seen is the photo the Press Secretary's office put out.  I've lightened the face of Trump and darkened the foreground so you can see better.  This is where Trump wants to be, at center of everyone's attention.

The childish script and cheezy video actual left me optimistic for the future. It's important to know your audience. This video was designed to flatter and hopefully calm down two people with huge egos, bad haircuts and nuclear arsenals at their disposal.

We aren't dead today, that's a good thing. The hand of peace has been shaken.

Next week I expect the White House to take out "For your Consideration." ads in the Economist,
"Donald Trump for Nobel Peace Prize."
