Col. Oliver North, who was convicted on multiple counts during the Iran-Contra scandal, is the new spokesperson for Activision’s next 'Call of Duty' video game.

In a video published this week (below), North warns of a "nightmare scenario" where a hacker takes control of every single airplane over the U.S.

Prior games in the 'Call of Duty' series have used controversial figures like Donald Rumsfeld and Robert McNamara.

The first Call of Duty: Black Ops' was about fictionalized behind-the-scenes events following the failed overthrow of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
