If you live in Australia then you might have seen the above ad on YouTube. It looks like it started a little panic over there with people checking news websites and social networks to see if the news was true. After finding out that it wasn’t true viewers took to the comments to express their disgust and hate.

Here are what some viewers we’re saying in the comments:

Almost freaked out at the YouTube homepage banner ad for Homefront, thinking it was a real headline on a North Korean attack. Not cool.

HOLY SHIT I thought North Korea ACTUALLY Launched a nuclear ATTACK! FUCK YOU YOUTUBE AND YOUR SHITTING GAMING ADVERTISINGS!

I find the front page advertisement for “HomeFront” on Youtube to be offensive. I thought North Korea had actually attacked. Misleading.

not sure if the ‘North Korea Attacks’ Youtube banner ad for #Homefront is the most tasteful use of advertising i’ve ever seen.

The image is from the background video for Homefront below:
