[Video Link] The song playing in this viral video mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is a Chinese pop hit by the Chopstick Brothers, which was pretty amazing in its own right.
"The clip was made by a Chinese man surnamed Zhang from Suzhou who reportedly studied at Kyonggi University in South Korea," reports Chosun Ilbo:
North Korea has asked China to stop the spread of a video clip lampooning leader Kim Jong-un.
According to a source in China on Tuesday, the North feels the clip, which shows Kim dancing and Kung-Fu fighting, "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority."
Beijng was unable to oblige.
The video depicts Kim fighting and dancing. In one scene U.S. President Barack Obama knocks him out. In another, a bucket is placed on his head and he falls into a swimming pool. At one point, he dances through a field hand in hand with Osama Bin Laden.
