Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-Un Team Up in Hilarious North Korean 'NBA Jam'

Forget about Bo Jackson in Tecmo Bowl, it seems the most unbeatable character in all of video games is Kim Jong-un from NBA Jam

Right now you are probably trying to remember if any of the versions of the game featured the North Korean leader. 

Not to worry, your memory doesn't fail you. Scott Skiles aside, the classic arcade game remains safe from any bizarre entries. This particular video comes from the YouTube comedy channel, Official Comedy

While I was always partial to using Alonzo Mourning and Larry Johnson, I can see how I might want to cheat and go with the duo of besties Kim and Dennis Rodman

The video parodies the recent trip Rodman took to North Korea, where he took in a basketball game with his newest BFF Kim Jong-un. The fallout has been a pleasant mix of outrage and hilarity. Deadspin informed us of all the wild and wacky rules the North Koreans have for basketball. 

Rodman then had a very Rodman-like interview to cap it all off, which was filed under the so-bad-it's-good section of entertainment. 

Now we get this sweet moment of retro gaming with Kim Jong-un owning every last possession and dominating with dunks and three-pointers. 

Say what you want about Kim the dictator, but he is like Shawn Kemp and Detlef Schrempf rolled into one. He even makes you forget Rony Seikaly was even in the original game. 

Twitter, it's what the cool kids are doing.
