There are recent reports that mysterious North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's government has ordered all North Korean men to get Kim's "Fresh Prince of Pyongyang look," Jimmy Kimmel said on Monday's Kimmel Live. "It looks like he got three minutes into the haircut and your barber died." Always seeking out the limits of what people will do to get on TV, Kimmel's team went out on Hollywood Blvd. to see if any American pedestrians would take them up on their offer of a free Kim Jong Un haircut.

At least two people agreed, as so Goose and Mike from Legends Barbershop went to work, cameras running. The barbers seemed reluctant to actually carry through with their mission to give the male and female volunteers Kim Jong Un haircuts, and Kimmel sounded almost remorseful at times. But, mission accomplished. You can watch the haircuts and their aftermath in the video below. Peter Weber
