North Korea is reportedly outraged at a popular video that depicts its leader frolicking in a field with Osama bin Laden and shooting fireworks out of his crotch.
The video - a montage of clips edited to include North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - has been spreading on Chinese social media.
Pyongyang are said to be angry at the video, claiming it "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority."
It has asked the Chinese government to remove the video, but Beijing said it was "unable" to do so.
The video shows clips of people dancing and fighting to a Chinese techno track (You're My Little Apple), and is crudely edited to include the faces of world leaders.
Other clips depict Jong Un dancing shirtless in the street, getting pummelled by US President Barack Obama, and accidentally firing a small missile into his backside.
The video was supposedly made by a Chinese man who studied at a university in South Korea.
This follows protests from North Korea regarding upcoming Hollywood film The Interview, which portrays a fictional CIA attempt to assassinate the North Korean leader.
North Korea sent a letter of complaint to the White House regarding the film, which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, claiming it insulted the nation's leader.
