North Koreas latest launch is not missiles, but a TV advertising campaign for a locally-brewed beer.
The advert, billed as the “Pride of Pyongyang”, [promises drinkers](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8132199.stm) that the beer will help ease stress. “It represents the new look of Pyongyang. It will be a familiar part of our lives”, the advert says.
Taedonggang Beer Factory has been making the brew since 2002.
Several young people dressed as mummies attempted to hold a protest at Red Square in Moscow. The protesters wrapped from head to toe in white bandages [identified themselves](http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/01/21/Anniversary_of_Lenins_death_sparks_protest/UPI-15521232553443/) as Orthodox monarchists. The group previously held a demonstration in support of burying Lenin near the graves of his mother and sisters in St. Petersburg.
