indonesia's obama lookalike


Remember this guy? Ilham Anas is Indonesian Barack Obama lookalike. In 2007, the 34-year-old teen-magazine photographer from Jakarta found a calling when it occurred to him that he bears a striking resemblance to the now-President of the United States: Barack Obama look-alike in demand in Asia.

Since then, he's been in high demand, appearing in television commercials and internet ads across Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. You can't really blame the guy for cashing in -- I'm sure he never really anticipated growing up to look like the most famous man in America. But hey, if you've got it, use it.
