North Korea released a propaganda video on Saturday depicting a nuclear strike on Washington warning “American imperialists” not to provoke the communist nation.

The four-minute video, titled “Last Chance,” uses computer animation to show a ballistic missile hitting the nation’s capital, followed by a nuclear explosion.

“If the American imperialists provoke us a bit, we will not hesitate to slap them with a pre-emptive nuclear strike,” the video says in Korean, The New York Times reported.

“The United States must choose! It’s up to you whether the nation called the United States exists on this planet or not,” the video says.

The clip was uploaded to the YouTube channel of D.P.R.K. Today, a North Korean website.

The video continues to chronicle what it calls “humiliating defeats” suffered by the U.S. at North Korea’s hands over the years, including the North’s capture in 1968 of an American ship, and the shooting down of an American helicopter in 1994.

The video is not the first of its kind. North Korea released a similar clip in 2013 that showed Manhattan being bombed, and another video released soon afterward showed President Obama and American troops in flames.
