(Yahoo!Sports) A parody of a North Korean state news broadcast claiming that the isolated nation’s team won the World Cup group stage (despite not qualifying for the tournament) has some people convinced it’s real and everyone giggling at its claims.

According to the video, North Korea sailed through the group stage with a 7-0 win over Japan, 4-0 win over the U.S. and 2-0 win over China, putting them in a playoff against Portugal. It also shows images of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un superimposed on the big screen at Rio’s World Cup fan fest.
