Rocking out to North Korea

“Ain’t no party like a Pyongyang party, cause a Pyongyang party is ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY.”

The latest video (below) of North Korea to go viral is pretty much guaranteed to get you up on outta your chair.

Usually heard spilling out of a night club or into the ears of a teeny bopper Top-40 lover, LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" is juxtaposed in this video with scenes from military parades overseen by Kim Jong Il.

As the Youtube description states:

“Ain’t no party like a Pyongyang party, cause a Pyongyang party is ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY.”
