Look I realize that this is a 5 minute youtube video which is essentially like asking you to watch the English Patient in internet time, but if you have 5 minutes to burn at work, I sincerely suggest you watch the whole thing. Just a tour de force of awkward questions, answers, rambling, scarfs and dollar bill suit jackets. Now to give you some context I here, I guess it was discovered that Kim Jong Un was a huge fan of the 90's Bulls*. So in order to strengthen diplomatic relations/dissuade North Korea from wanting to nuke us, we sent Dennis Rodman to smooth the seas! One of those 'makes so little sense it almost makes perfect sense but still seems pretty iffy' decisions. But from what I can gather from Rodman in this interview it sounds like he didn't damage our relations any further and we're basically one phone call from Obama to Jong Un from becoming best friends. Hey Kim Jong, on the count of 3, name your favorite dinosaur!
*Who didn't love the 90's Bulls. I hate everything Chicago related with the exception of the 90's Bulls. And John Belushi**. But that's it. So I guess Kim Jong and me aren't all that different. We both dig on 90's basketball. We both love the antics of The Worm. We're about the same age and have reached the top of our professions (him, dictator of North Korea, me dictator of Strange Brew until my Mom needs to use the computer). I mean minus the whole 'putting people in labor camps for not respecting him,' we're pretty much the same guy.
**How Jim and John Belushi are related is a mystery greater than the pyramids.
PS: Kudos to Stephanopoulos for keeping this interview somewhat together. I'm sure he was DREADING this from the day his producer booked it. Guy has talked to presidents, foreign diplomats, kings and queens and I'm sure he was more nervous for this than all of those combined. Rodman has the mind of a post-cocaine binge Rick James combined with the articulation of Shannon Sharpe. Yet somehow this seemed coherent.
