Lighten Up! Obama Look-a-like Stars in Antacid Commercial

A shy 34-year-old Indonesian photographer has risen to fame in Asia thanks to his striking resemblance to the 44th president of the United States. Ilam Anas has been gaining attention and income thanks to his Obama-like looks. Right now, he's starring in an antacid commercial in the Philippines, where he dines with a Filipino president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo look-a-like. Speaking about his newfound fame, Anas said: "At first my nose and eyes made me self-conscious, but now I think they are God's blessing." While Anas gets the fame and money, we get to enjoy the uncanny resemblance.

HIs name is Ilham, not Ilam. I think he works as teen magazine's photographer in Indonesia.
