Tuesday's HOT MIC

Tuesday's HOT MIC

A YouTube prankster made himself up to look like North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and wandered the streets of New York.

The reactions from New Yorkers are priceless.


Over the course of the almost seven-minute video (edited down from ten hours of footage,) the reactions ranged from excited screams to surprising DPRK-like loyalty and yes—shouted ignorance of current events (‘Kim Jong-Il!’ shrieked one shocked NY’er.)

Based on all of the genuinely duped people in this video, one has to wonder how many New Yorkers are paying attention to the latest news out of the region.

Strolling through Harlem down to the Empire State Building, all the way to Koreatown, the fake Kim Jong-Un was accompanied by an imposter General but was missing Dennis Rodman, as one astute hair stylist pointed out when the Supreme Leader stopped in to inquire about a possible trim.
