Kim Jong Un’s dancing has infuriated North Korea. The reclusive nation demanded China to take down a viral video that sees its supreme leader digitally manipulated into dancing.

The video sees Kim’s head is superimposed onto various bodies, making it seem that he was dancing with U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, sparring with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, as well as galloping on the field with Osama Bin Laden.

His father and grandfather, Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung also made an appearance.

No one would mistake the video as compilation of real events, but North Korea apparently still wanted the video to be taken down because it “seriously compromises Kim’s dignity and authority.”

A source told South Korean paper Chosun Ilbo that Pyongyang has asked Beijing to stop the spread of the said video, but “Beijing was unable to oblige.”

The clip was reportedly made by Zhang from Suzhou, China, who studied at Kyonggi University in South Korea.

The video has already over 540,000 views on YouTube since it was uploaded on July 11.

Apart from the three and a half-minute lampoon video, North Korea is also condemning the upcoming comedy flick “The Interview.”

The U.S. film stars James Franco and Seth Rogen as a tabloid TV host and producer who land an interview with Kim. However, as they prepare to travel to Pyongyang, the duo are recruited by the CIA to assassinate the North Korean leader.

Kim’s spokesman said the film shows the “desperation” of the Americans.

“There is a special irony in this storyline as it shows the desperation of the U.S. government and American society, Kim Myong-chol, executive director of The Centre for North Korea-U.S. Peace, told the Telegraph.

“A film about the assassination of a foreign leader mirrors what the U.S. has done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Ukraine,” the unofficial spokesman said. “And let us not forget who killed [President John F.] Kennedy – Americans.

“In fact, President [Barack] Obama should be careful in case the U.S. military wants to kill him as well.”

Comparing Hollywood movies and British films, Kim Myong-chol said that the former are “full of assassinations and executions,” while the latter are better and more realistic.

He also cited James Bond films, which are produced by the British, as “much more enjoyable.”
