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.”
