US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un might never be best buddies, but convincing impersonators are giving Hong Kongers a glimpse of what their improbable friendship might look like.
Describing themselves as political satirists, the pair hugged and pretended to kiss as they posed for photos outside the US consulate on Wednesday.
Kim — a Hong Konger who gave his name as Howard — was dressed all in black and sported the North Korean leader’s trademark swept-back hair.
Next to him a pouting Trump — played by man named Dennis from Chicago — showed off an orange tan and a brushed blonde thatch.
Waving the national flags of the United States and North Korea, “Kim” pronounced “Death to America” as onlookers giggled and snapped photos of the pair with their smartphones.
The duo are in town to make a new video for a Chinese New Year song “Kim” produced for a group called Bossa Negra.
They are set to appear at Orange Peel bar next Saturday, February 4. Tickets start at HK$190.
