Per Business Insider, two men showed up to the opening festivities dressed as North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un and President Donald Trump. No one really had any idea why they were dressed up as two, uh, venerated political leaders, but they caused quite a stir.

The two were eventually escorted off the premises, so we may never know their true motives. Was it a political statement about the relations between North Korea and the United States? A cultural commentary on the status of these two rulers? Or did they simply want to party it up?
