Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel aired video Wednesday night of individuals on Hollywood Boulevard congratulating North Korea on its claim of a "successful" hydrogen bomb test.
"The idea of North Korea having a hydrogen bomb would be somewhat alarming to those of us who are here on the west coast," Kimmel said before showing the clip.
It was not clear if the individuals interviewed by Kimmel's crew were replying with sarcastic answers or simply unaware of the issue, but many offered congratulations to the communist country and its dictator.
"That's really good," one woman said. "Congratulations North Korea!"
"You know, I think that if you do believe that one day — dreams can come true," another said.
"If you believe you can do it, then you can achieve it," commented one more.
"Congratulations Kim Jong-un on everything you've done!" one more person added
