Indonesian photographer Ilham Anas won’t be at U.S. President Barack Obama’s inauguration. Instead he’ll be starring as an Obama look-alike on Indonesian TV.
Anas, 34, who from some angles bears a resemblance to the new U.S. president, shot to fame in Jakarta after Obama, 47, won the election in November, and is now earning income as an Obama double.
“When Obama won, my colleagues played a practical joke on me — they made me wear a suit, a tie, and took pictures of me posing as Obama,” Anas told Reuters.
“The pictures spread very quickly on the Internet. It was phenomenal. Then TV stations and an advertising agency got in touch with me.”
That led to an appearance in a pharmaceuticals advertisement in the Philippines where he played Obama.
