The group responsible for the Sony hacking scandal just took their campaign to a dangerous new level via a new message directed at both Sony executives and anyone planning to see the now-controversial comedy, The Interview.
"We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places The Interview be shown, including the premiere," reads the latest threat from the group known as Guardians of Peace.
"How bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to. Soon all will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made."
"The world will be full of fear. Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If the house is nearby, you'd better leave.)...All will denounce Sony."
The broken English and cartoonish commands to "denounce Sony" perfectly encapsulate the bizarre mix of absurd humor and real fear that's characterized this scandal.
The hacks have damaged the reputations of several Sony execs, two of whom were exposed for making racist jokes about President Obama via their corporate email accounts.
The Interview stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, and while both actors have denounced the actions of the hackers, they've also expressed their belief that the impact of the attacks will be minimal.
North Korea has denied responsibility, but offered praise for those responsible for the hacks.
