USA/Indonesia: Indonesian lookalike Barack Obama.

Ilham Anas, who was born in Bandung on Java island in 1973, became a celebrity in his hometown of Jakarta, the day of the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States on 28 november 2008.
Because his striking resemblance to U.S. President: even honest smile, same hairline.
Assaulted by onlookers when he puts his nose out, he finds it hard to go unnoticed.
The interest of Indonesia to the route of the U.S. president is due to the fact that Obama's mother, Ann Dunham (1942-1995) married an Indonesian, Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo (1935-1987), after separation from the Kenyan father of Obama in 1963.
"When Obama was elected, my friends were joking and I took pictures posing as Obama. The pictures spread very quickly on the Internet. I was then contacted by an advertising agency and a television. I never thought I'd become a star of a commercial Television, "said Ilhan Anas.
He was selected to play lookalike of U.S. President on U.S. television because it's his job now.
There are other impersonators Obama, including the Cuban Gerardo Buisseaux, journalist in Havana became famous before the U.S. presidential election. He had also called Latin Americans to vote overwhelmingly for Obama.
In other times, in some dictatorial regimes, the likenesses of Joseph Stalin or Adolf Hitler had very unenviable fates!
