Peoples Digest Online – Passersby were shocked as Kim Jong-un appeared to stride into the Trump Building with a bodyguard and ask to see the US President – but all was not as it seemed.
YouTube prankster QPark hired a look-a-like of the North Korean leader to walk through three different New York neighbourhoods, and then filmed the reactions they got. Unsuspecting bystanders shouted ‘rocket man’ and ‘what’s he doing in America?’ as the dictator doppelgänger and QPark , dressed as a bodyguard, walked past.
The pair started in Harlem, where they visited a barber in the hope of getting a trim for the leader’s classic ‘bowl cut’. People seemed to immediately recognise the famous dictator but not for his threats to ‘annihilate’ the US in a nuclear war.
Some instead remarked on his famous friendship with former basketball star Dennis Rodman. Americans even stopped to pose for photos with the fake Korean despot, claiming they felt ‘so blessed’ to meet him. They then headed to Wall Street where the 71-storey Trump Building stands.
Walking straight into reception ‘Kim Jong-un’ asked: “Have you seen Donald Trump?” Only to be told “I’m afraid that is classified” by amused security guards.
One Facebook commenter wrote: “The real problem here is that they believed it was really him.”
“He gets more respect than Trump,” joked another viewer.
Another added: “I’m really not sure how many people didn’t know this was real.”
