A man has gone viral for asking a barber to style his hair like the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
You can imagine how many barbers get asked for the simple short back and sides look and while Kim's 'do is fairly similar to that, it has an unmistakable twist.
The bloke rocked up to his hairdresser and literally told him to give him a Kim Jong-un look and the barber pulled it off with stunning accuracy.
He's uploaded the result to TikTok, where it has gone viral and has been picked up on other social media sites.
One person commented on the clip, saying: "Gotta watch his back now lol. A sniper might mistake him for the real deal."
Another added: "I love that the hair stylist is enjoying it as much as he is."
A third wrote: "His hairline has travelled further back than the rockets ever could."
While the man looks uncannily like the ruler of the infamous Hermit Kingdom, the real dictator has recently changed his appearance; so much so that experts are shocked.
While he was still sporting his iconic hairdo, Kim Jong-un was noticeably slimmer during an event to mark the country's 73rd anniversary.
He oversaw thousands of people who gathered to watch the paramilitary and public security forces from the Worker-Peasant Red Guards march through Pyongyang's Kim Il Sung square.
Speaking about the event and the North Korean leader's new look, Martyn Williams from the think tank the 38 North Project, said: "It's striking how much healthier Kim Jong-un is looking in these photos from yesterday.
"However he is doing it - and there are theories - he looks a lot better than he did a few months ago."
Photographs of the slimmed-down leader hit the headlines following his first appearance in state media after a prolonged absence back in June.
The images led to speculation following rumours that he had in fact died as a result of botched heart surgery in August last year.
As a result, government officials insisted that not only was Jong-un in perfectly good health but that he had also lost weight as a result of worrying about his people and their ongoing food shortages, which has been blamed on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
There were rumours circulating that North Korean officials had warned citizens to refrain from publicly discussing national leader Jong-un's health after he appeared to have lost weight in recent months.
Sources claimed that such gossip was viewed as a 'reactionary act'.
