Two pranksters snuck into North Korea by pretending to be pro golfers, 'brought great shame upon their families.'
Two Australian guys snuck into extremely private North Korea by masquerading as the Australian Golf Team in their annual golf championships. Surprisingly, they got in.
Morgan Ruig and Evan Shea, both 28, didn't expect their little prank to work, it was only an email submission, but once they were accepted they had pro-looking green blazers made complete with Australian emblems.
"I think their internet access is really limited in North Korea, so they didn't have too many opportunities for research there," Shay told 9 News, delighting in the foils of a totalitarian family dictatorship.
Of course, officials figured things out once they got out on the links.
"Everyone thought we were actually pretty legit," Shay told The Daily Mail, until they "put the ball in the river."
Ruig said he scored a 121, a score so bad his caddy said that it would 'bring great shame upon our families.'"
Apparently, the people in N Korea were pretty chill about the whole thing considering what a ballsy move it was. And they didn't come in last. They came in second-to-last before the Nepalese ambassador's 15-year-old daughter.
They could never have expected to win anyway, considering the golf prowess North Korea's deceased Supreme Leader Kim Jong Il, according to this totally non-propoganda wesbite
After picking up a golf club that day for the very first time in his life, the Dear Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea fired a 38-under-par round of 34 at Pyongyang. According to the 17 security guards who observed the performance, the score included an amazing 11 aces. Naturally, the event was dutifully reported to the North Korean masses by the state news agency.
