Viral Video Chart: Kim Jong-un, Weird Al and sperm whales

Kim Jong-un: Fat Guy Number 3
Our first video this week shows Kim Jong-un breakdancing with Obama and running through a field hand-in-hand with Osama bin Laden and, apparently, the North Koreans aren't happy about it. Our choice for number one viral video, Kim Jong-un: Fat Guy Number 3, was uploaded to the Chinese video-sharing site Tencent, where it's been watched more than 55m times.
Meanwhile, Weird Al Yankovic has hit out at the semi-illiterate among us with a video called Word Crimes, a parody of Robin Thicke's controversial anthem Blurred Lines (no, we're not going to link to it).
A video of an unidentified groovy granddad was posted on Facebook from somewhere in Peru and shows an old man throwing down his walking sticks to get down and dirty to some 50s classics. It is now everywhere and has, predictably, been remixed with some questionable music.
Elsewhere, two kayakers near the coastal city of Puerto Madryn in Argentina get a little too close to a sperm whale, the largest toothed predator, and are lifted on to its back. We're not sure, but the resulting video is perhaps too amazing to be true.
