the filipino obama


This is kind of amusing. A series a photos has been circulating around the web calling this lookalike the "Filipino Obama." I don't think he's going to fool anyone, but you've got to admit, at the right angle, the resemblance is pretty close. Who is this guy? I have no idea. But the photos are kind of funny. A quick Google search reveals some more photos here. (Thanks, Ling.)

UPDATE: Turns out, this guy is not the Filipino Obama. He's actually a 34-year-old photographer from Indonesia named Ilham Anas, and his resemblance to our new president has apparently rocketed the guy to fame: Indonesian Obama Look-Alike.
