The North Korean government is upset about a video that shows Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un's face Photoshopped onto people acting ridiculously. Kim's face is cleverly placed on scenes from TV shows, movies and other popular viral dance videos - and garnered the type of response its video creator expected. Music used in the video originates from the Chopstick Brothers, a popular Chinese group.



Chinese citizen Zhang made the video, living in the southeastern city of Suzhou, who studied in South Korea at Kyonggi University.


The North Korean government has asked China to prevent the video from being shared, worried the short clip "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority." However, Beijing will not adhere to the request, as the video becomes even more popular.
