An advertisement for the cheating website AshleyMadison.com capitalizes on the news of Kim Jong-un's recently-revealed marriage to advertise its services.

The billboard near LAX features a picture of the North Korean dictator alongside the text: "Affairs Now Guaranteed. Even if you look like him."

We learned about the billboard in a release from the company:

CEO Noel Biderman thought it was the perfect time to welcome the monochromatically dressed dictator to the world of wedded bliss. "Whether you're the most powerful man in America, France, Italy or North Korea - you are destined to cheat. With with 15 million members in 25 countries, even Kim Jung Un can find an affair on AshleyMadison.com." brags Biderman.

Kim, who took the reigns of the country after his father's death, has been seen with a mysterious woman at a concert and other events recently, but the woman's identity—Ri Sol Ju—was not revealed until recently. News that Kim is off the market was buried in an official state TV report about his visit to a new amusement park. No other information about her or how long they've been married was released.

The announcement did end speculation that Kim was dating the North Korean pop star Hyon Song-wol, whose hits include "Excellent Horse-Like Lady" and "I Love Pyongyang."
