North Korean officials have been trying to stop the viral spread of a video on the internet, but have not had much luck.

Chosunilbo, a South Korean newspaper, reported that the country asked China for help in stopping it.

The video shows leader Kim Jong Un dancing around to a Chinese music track, much in the same fashion as a Jib-Jab cartoon video. It also shows him fighting and at one point, and being knocked out by President Barack Obama.

North Korea said it "seriously compromises Kim's dignity and authority," according to the newspaper.

Chosunilbo also said that Beijing was unable to comply.

This was just the latest attempt by North Korea to quell sensationalism by outside sources.

It recently sent a letter to the White House to protest a Seth Rogen and James Franco movie about an assassination attempt on Kim called The Interview.

Kim was reportedly livid about the release of the film, which is due out in October.

A spokesperson for the North Korean Foreign Ministry called it an "act of war" in another letter to the United Nations, according to CNN.
