(NEWSER) – Dennis Rodman apparently has a new BFF. As he was about to depart North Korea after his "sports diplomacy" trip, Rodman called Kim Jong Un an "awesome guy," the AP reports. (This after Rodman confirmed to Kim, "You have a friend for life.") So what did the two pals do last night? "They bonded" during a basketball game, says the founder of VICE Media, which is filming the whole thing for a TV special. That apparently led to Kim inviting everyone back to the palace for a party, reports the New York Times. VICE correspondent Ryan Duffy told his boss they "had a grand old time." Dinner, he says, "Was an epic feast. Felt like about 10 courses in total. I'd say the winners were the smoked turkey and sushi."

More proof it was an epic time: A VICE employee tweeted, "Um... so Kim Jong Un just got the #VICEonHBO crew wasted... no really, that happened." He also used the novel hashtag "#NoKoYOLO." Duffy later invited Kim to the US, and everyone laughed, he says. Before leaving, Rodman also called Kim's father Kim Jong Il and grandfather, North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, "great leaders," and noted that Kim himself is "so honest." Needless to say, many people are not amused.
