Doppelgangers!



An Indonesian photographer who bares a striking resemblance to U.S. President Barack Obama has shot to fame after pictures of him surfaced on the internet. Also of American and Kenyan descent, Ilham Anas is now earning income as an Obama double.

For those unable to afford Mr. Anas, I was a big hit in Palm Beach this Christmas where I was regularly approached by elderly women asking if I knew I looked like the President's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel.

FYI - that's the real President on the left and the real Rahm on the right.

The first couple shots with Obama's look-alike are striking... "You're not a beautiful, unique snowflake" ;)

Firt time I saw a photo of Rahm Emmanuel the hair looked lighter and more grayish, and the angle made him look like George Clooney.

Ilham Anas recently did a commercial here in the Philippines for an antacid (or something) with a corresponding lookalike of our own president (Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo).

Most of it is in our language (Filipino) but the funny part is they dubbed Anas' lines to make him sound like the real Obama.

Wow, the resemblance is striking! Not a bad thing since Rahm is considered one of the hotties of the new administration. :)
