Another day, another reason for Kim Jong-un and North Korea to be mad. A Chinese student has made a bizarre Kim Jong-un dance video, superimposing his head onto dozens of scenarios for a video that's now gone viral. Not surprisingly, Kim is not finding the humor in it. And in a move that can only be labeled as "Oh, I see how it is," North Korea's request for China to remove the video has been met with silence. (I guess China's OK with political parodies when they're not targeting their own.) But we think that Kim should try to see the bright side: The video makes him look kind of badass.
According to South Korea's Chosun Ilbo, the video, set to the song "Little Apple" by the Chopstick Brothers, is the work of a Suzhou man with the surname Zhang, who reportedly studied at Kyonggi University in South Korea. Interesting choice, Zhang. Are you trying to say that, as the chorus suggests, Kim is your "little apple"?
Zhang also made sure to include cameos from the likes of President Obama, who is depicted as a trouble-making prankster with a penchant for popping out of nowhere to kick Kim, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Osama bin Laden, and Kim's father and grandfather.
Chosun Ilbo reports that, according a source in China, North Korea feels that the video "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority." Um, I would say that this video is the least of your problems in that department. In fact, watching a fictional Kim Jong-un own it on the dance floor can only improve his public image, because, well, not much can make it worse.
Obama walks by and laughs at the supreme leader. Don't listen to him, Kim. Just go on with your bad self.

What are these two troublemakers up to now?
Kim (and Obama) show off some sweet ballet moves.
A fight erupts between Kim and Obama at a karate tournament, and in a surprising twist, Putin intervenes to break it up.
Talk about fists of fury.
Kim sits this round out as Obama and Putin face off in a fight... refereed by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
But it quickly turns into a dance-off. Why not.
I mean, really, who would mess with this?
And I bet you didn't know that Kim is a world-renowned soccer star. Remember when North Korea went to the World Cup finals this year?

Sometimes a man's just gotta ride his hog into the sunset, you know?
