Sony hack reveals Seth Rogen’s hilarious idea for appeasing North Korea

North Korea Vs. Sony Pictures Seth Rogen

While it doesn’t look like North Korea was directly responsible for the massive hack on Sony Pictures’ systems, it does seem that whoever executed the hack did so in retaliation for Sony’s upcoming film The Interview, a comedy that revolves around attempts to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Re/code flags some leaked emails that were unearthed during the hack between Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal and film star Seth Rogen that show Rogen had a very unusual idea for appeasing the angry communist regime.

In response to Pascal’s concerns that Sony Pictures might be targeted for retaliation by the regime due to the film’s depiction of its leader, Rogen reassured her that he would try to ease tensions between the studio and North Korea by making Kim’s death scene somewhat less gruesome.

“We will make it less gory,” Rogen vowed. “There are currently four burn marks on his face. We will take out three of them, leaving only one. We reduce the flaming hair by 50%… The head explosion can’t be more obscured than it is because we honestly feel that if it’s any more obscured you won’t be able to tell its exploding and the joke won’t work. Do you think this will help? Is it enough?”

It likely isn’t enough, of course, because even with less flaming hair and fewer burn marks, the film will still depict Kim Jong-un’s head exploding.
