Watch : as a Kim Jong Un impersonator skirts security and crashes Australia's Prime Minister's event

On Friday, a man costumed as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invaded Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s election campaign event, eluding security to enter a manufacturing plantafter the Australian leader had left.

PM Morrison was in Chisholm, a marginal seat won by local member Gladys Liu by less than 1%. On May 21, Australia will hold an election, with Morrison’s center-right Liberal National Coalition trailing the opposition Labor Party in opinion polls.

The impostor arrived at the door shortly after PM Morrison had departed and, after conversing briefly with journalists, walked entered the premises. He claimed to be Howard X, a Kim Jong Un impersonator who has made news for mimicking North Korea’s Supreme Leader in the past, including at the 2018 US-North Korea summit in Singapore.

During his visit to the factory, he stated flatly that voting for the ruling Liberal National Coalition would be a vote for the Chinese Communist Party.

“You don’t tell a Supreme Leader what to do,” he said when a member of the prime minister’s media staff instructed the impostor to go.

The actor declined to say whether he was a member of a political party or movement, but Australian senator and Chinese government critic Drew Pavlou said he had previously discussed Howard X’s visit to Chisholm with the actor.

Pavlou tweeted, “This is actually one of the best things we’ve ever managed.” “I adore you, Howard, you gorgeous genius.”

Australian police questioned the imposter later.
