Despite the harsh reaction to James Franco and Seth Rogen's comedy about killing Kim Jong-un, the internet has lampooned the North Korean dictator once again.
Kim Jong-Un is currently trying to get China to take down a satirical video that shows the dictator dancing, running, and being hit by a rocket, in addition to being pranked by "President Obama" several times. Kim Jong-un is even depicted holding hands with Osama Bin Laden.
