N. Korean dictator Kim becomes popular drink's model

Seoul (The Korea Herald/ANN) - Although Kim Jong-il is the most influential and even scary figure in North Korea, he is treated as a hilarious icon outside of the hermit kingdom.

A new Sprite advertisement which features a dictator clearly modeled after Kim is popular among Chinese websites.

Produced in Israel, the advertisement depicts the dictator dancing wildly after taking a sip of the drink. It starts with a very familiar scene, like those occasionally shown on major news broadcasts all over the world; the march of people's army at a city that looks just like Pyongyang.

Then, a soldier carefully brings the leader a bottle of soda. The crowd watches him carefully in silence until he shouts "Can you feel it?" Suddenly, everyone starts to dance, and the military march turns into a party.

Kim has been a favorite sources of jokes or parodies internationally. He was also introduced as "Super Kim," in a video--based on the Super Mario series of games--criticizing the North Korean government.
