Serbian gets Kim Jong-un haircut

The first version of the video below, in which a talented Serbian barber uses his talents in the WRONG WAY, was taken down from YouTube; but when it was up it had the following explanation:

As tensions mount worldwide over North Korean missile tests, one Serbian barber has decided to commemorate this uneasy period in global geopolitics with his unique form of artistic expression and social commentary. Mario Hvala, a barber at the House Damian Hair and Make up shop in Novi Sad, Serbia’s second-largest city, has a penchant for celebrity portraits, employing client’s scalps as his preferred canvas.

Huffpo also highlighted it and said this:

A bizarre dream by a Serbian barber led to a hair-raising cut for a customer.

Mario Hvala of Novi Sad, in northern Serbia, recently dreamed that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and his staff visited him in his living room.

“When I woke up, I decided to do this hair tattoo,” he told Storyful. “And it came out looking pretty amazing,”

The complete haircut took five hours, and Hvala added to the absurdity by playing North Korean music throughout the whole thing.

Well, I found the short video had been re-posted, so here it is. I hope that guy’s hair grows back fast, as Kim is gonna get a five o’clock shadow. And I’m sure this kind of haircut would be a capital crime in the DPRK!

    Should be a crime anywhere, especially the music.

    background music is an ode to Josip Broz Tito (Yugoslavian president for life) performed by chinese kids. somewhat appropriate.

    So, did YouTube (Google) give an explanation for taking it down? (Perhaps because it harmed Google’s chances of expanding into North Korea? Because they did not want to offend the Dear Leader?)

    That’s some remarkable work.

    I’m not sure it would be a capital crime in the DPRK though. It actually can be seen as a tribute. But then, one of the pillars of such a regime is that punishment can be meted out capriciously.

    I have to say the haircut is better-looking than the original. The haircut looks almost human. The original looks like a small dead furry animal sitting on a big egg.

    Heh, I’ afraid barbers’s reason for this kind of haircut goes beyond the dream he, apparently, had. Some of my fellow Serbs are hopelessly attached to dictators ( Kim, Assad, Gaddafi, Putin )and are anti-western, just check comments on social networks and you’ll see what I mean.

    I hope KJU does not see this and consequently order all males in NK to have the same done. Subject aside, that barber has quite an artistic eye and could probably swap barbering for painting.

    Reminds me of the 2014 incident when representatives of North Korea asked a London hairdresser to stop using a picture of their ‘bad hair day’ Leader on his advertising poster: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-27038723
