At the 4th of July celebration at the White House earlier this month, none of the guests were able to have their photo taken with the President. That didn’t stop the thousand-plus guests from going home with a souvenir photo of themselves and a presidential-look-a-like, though.
Veteran balloon twister Todd Neufeld was on hand with his 25 balloon Obama doppelgÃ¤nger.

Balloon twisting isnâ€™t typically a career that leads to fame and fortune, but Neufeld has done remarkable things with just latex and helium. He founded the Twisted Balloon Company in 2003, an empire of balloon artists that he continues to operate out of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and he personally performs at roughly 175 events every year.
