THQ enlists North Korean 'soldiers' to promote Homefront
In order to promote its upcoming shooter Homefront, THQ enlisted a group of struggling actors totally real soldiers. The group marched throughout the streets of Figueroa near the Staples Center before stopping into the ESPN Zone bar to watch North Korea take on Brazil in the first-round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Renting out an entire parking lot across from the Los Angeles Lakers' home base, THQ set up barricades plastered with dozens of flags proclaiming the land was the property of the North Korean Federation. For citizens unaware of the E3 2010 event, it was quite a confusing spectacle. Video of the march after the break.
