Baghdad: Even as US-led coalition continues to battle Islamic State militants in Syria, a group of Iraqi artists have decided to use humour to take on the IS.

An Iraqi television channel has come up with a parody show 'State of Myths' which depicts what life would be like under the control of IS militants.

Despite the underlying threat from the militant group, the show mocks the militant group.

Set up in a fictional Iraqi town under the rule of ISIS, the trailer of the video reportedly shows its leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi hatching from an egg.

The trailer mocks a theory that ISIS is a product of US, Israel and Qatar to get an excuse to invade Iraq again, the Daily News stated a news report from Washington Post.
