Before even the Pentagon managed to confirm that the North Korean rocket exploded “immediately” after launch, social media users took to Twitter to mock the alleged failure of Pyongyang’s long anticipated demonstration of power amidst the US military buildup in the region.

The reports were met with much enthusiasm and illustrations of various explosions ranging from the famous Gangnam Style to the classic US Road Runner cartoon.
