Obama or Obamabot?

Barack Obama's amazingly consistent smile from Eric Spiegelman on Vimeo.

First, it was Paris Hilton and now, Barack Obama. Eric Spiegelman noticed that when President Obama hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he held the exact same smile in every photograph:

Ladies and gentlemen, your President is a robot. Or a wax sculpture. Maybe a cardboard cutout. All I know is no human being has a photo smile this amazingly consistent.

On Wednesday, the Obamas hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, during which they stood for 130 photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries in town for the UN meeting. The President has exactly the same smile in every single shot. See for yourself — the pictures are up on the State Department’s flickr (link below). And, of course, compressed into 20 seconds for your viewing pleasure.

There can only be on explanation: it was the Obamabot stand-in. The real President Obama was probably too busy dealing with the Russian Dead Hand in an underground bunker to be bothered by this museum stuff!

Well at least according to the Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi, the colour of the President of the United States is not white because he and his wife probably went sunbathing....

@ Woogie: "He was clearly created in a lab."

But was the lab located in the US or Indonesia?

This is almost as much fun as watching him deliver a speech. Tennis match anyone?
