Video: SNL spoofs Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong Un
Former NBA forward Dennis Rodman became the highest-profile American to meet new North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week.
Rodman recently returned from his visit to North Korea after tagging along with the Harlem Globetrotters. He reportedly spent significant time hanging out with the Kim.
So, the fine folks at Saturday Night Live decided to document their experience in a segment within Weekend Update.
The duo begins by doing a North Korean high five, which concludes by mimicking a missile explosion. Kim also talks about his love for American things, how he is the tallest person in North Korea, and admitting that he isn't wearing any pants, like Winnie the Pooh.
To say this whole Rodman story is odd would be a vast understatement. But at least SNL had some fun with it.
