A music producer dressed as North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un gatecrashed a campaign event attended by Scott Morrison.

The prime minister had been delivering a press conference with MP Gladys Liu at Extel Technologies manufacturing facility in Melbourne on Friday.

He then left the facility before the music producer, who goes by the name of Howard X, walked onto the scene dressed as Kim Jong-Un.  

He addressed reporters holding one hand behind his back while dressed in a pin-striped button up outfit and sporting glasses. 

He accused Liberal MP Gladys Liu of being a communist before saying he supported the Liberal candidate for Chisholm.

Reporters and camera crews huddled around the impersonator as he declared himself the ‘supreme leader’. 

One person tried to confront Howard X and tell him to leave before labelling the stunt the ‘most offensive thing I have ever seen in a campaign’. 

‘Don’t tell the Supreme Leader what to do,’ the impersonator responded. ‘I support Gladys Liu.’ 

The music producer was repeatedly asked by reporters for his proper name.

‘Supreme leader, Kim Jong-Un,’ he replied. 

One reporter remained determined to get the true identity of the impersonator and continued to badger him with questions.

‘Sir, that’s not good enough,’ he said. ‘Just tell us who you are.’

Howard X kept up the act before turning the tables on the reporter.

‘Who are you? Okay, tell me your family, where they live, and their routes to work,’ he said.

Queensland anti-China activist and senate candidate Drew Pavlou later took to Twitter to praise the stunt. 

‘This is actually one of the best things we’ve ever managed,’ he posted. ‘Love you Howard you beautiful genius.’
