Is this real life!?

It looks like it's officially on, much similarly to it is in the video game Donkey Kong!
That's how the saying goes, right?
Anywho, for the past few weeks Dennis Rodman has been hard at work in North Korea to help train their national basketball team in hopes of setting up a game for his good friend Kim Jong-Un's birthday on January 8th.
Well, it looks like he defied the odds and somehow recruited 6 former NBA players, including
The former basketballer has claimed that these trips are completely harmless, but it seems clear that he doesn't fully understand the seriousness of the situation overseas. Well someone who has seen the horrors firsthand is finally trying to give Dennis the wake-up call he so desperately needs!
Shin Dong-hyuk is a human-rights activist who was born in a North Korean labor camp and is the only know person to escape, and he's written an open letter to the big man in hopes of opening his eyes to reality in his home country.
In the chilling letter, he writes:
Well he's not letting anything stand in the way of his promise. And when we say anything, we mean ANYTHING!!!
The former NBA champ is set to make his third trip to North Korea this year, and it comes just a week after

He proceeded to sing along to some James Brown, which is infinitely better than meddling in real-life foreign affairs, we suppose!

We get it — Dennis Rodman's making light of the fact that he's been to North Korea and made friends with Kim Jong Un and how we all think he's nuts for it.
With all the people starving in North Korea, we find this ad — for food — in bad taste. Actually, we're pretty offended by it! What are you thinking, Wonderful Pistachios?
Watch it (above) and see for yourself. It's time for Dennis to stop meddling in things he has no qualifications for before something goes wrong!!
It looks like Dennis Rodman is hanging up his foreign diplomat hat and putting on his coaching hat instead!
In a story that just seems to get stranger and stranger, the former NBA superstar recently returned from his quick trip to North Korea and held a press conference to talk a bit about his visit, but he had no intentions about talking politics!
Instead, he focused on a subject he actually knows a thing or two about:
