(CBS) By all accounts, Dennis Rodman seems to be enjoying his trip to North Korea.

Rodman, as you remember, ventured to the Communist country with Vice Productions as the company films a series that will debut on HBO in April.

On Thursday, Rodman caught a basketball game with dictator Kim Jong Un. The two sat together and watched members of the Harlem Globetrotters take on the North Korean “dream team.”

As we learned yesterday, Kim Jong Un is a huge Rodman fan. And today, it appears the feelings are mutual.

“You have a friend for life,” Rodman told Kim before a crowd of thousands at a gymnasium where they sat side by side, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the U.S. play, Alex Detrick, a spokesman for the New York-based VICE media company, told The Associated Press.
