North Korea furious over dance video

A recent parody video of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has gone viral and has North Korean officials furious.

The parody shows Kim Jong Un's face superimposed into several videos set to the track of a Chinese pop hit by the Chopstick Brothers. The video shows the leader dancing with Russian President Vladimir Putin, being kicked to the ground by President Obama, working on the grounds crew at a baseball stadium, and dancing hand in hand with Osama Bin Laden.

A South Korean newspaper, Chosun IIbo, reports that officials in Pyongyang are furious about the video because it "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority." The North Korean government even requested that China stop the spread of the video which was created by a Chinese student that studied in South Korea. According to the paper, the Chinese Government was "unable to oblige."
