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 viral video is a Chinese-language techno track that features various dance and fight scenes in which Kim's head has been magicked on the body of a participant. In one scene, the eternally smiling Kim is knocked out by U.S. President Barack Obama, while in another he has a bucket upturned on his head and is pushed into a swimming pool.
In a third he dances through a field hand in hand with Osama Bin Laden.
