A Chinese Obama

An oddball and amusing footnote on my previous post is ‘the Chinese Obama’ (pictured, below).

This chap is an impersonator who is getting some international attention beyond his public appearances inside China. According to the report (linked, below) he even has a burgeoning career in (crap) movies all because he kind of resembles, a bit, from a distance, arguably, maybe… Obama.

The Chinese Obama is certainly a classic case that sums up today’s often nebulous reality, in which the overlapping realms of the real, the fake, and the make-believe can be dovetailed so confusingly well. While my mind’s eye mulls this over, a small glint sparkles for the bare-faced cheek, enterprising outlook, and frank attitude of this chap…
