change we need! change we need!

Fellow Labmate Lauren found this peculiar little story yesterday in the Chicago Tribune. The article (which you can read here) is about a Japanese man named Nozomu Sato who is a dedicated Obama impersonator. He’s 5′ 7″, speaks very little English, and his impersonation consists mostly of him shouting, “My name is Barack Obama! Change we need! Yes we can!

Apparently this guy is a Japanese comedian who impersonates Barack Obama on TV shows (and on his own blog). The Japanese Obama went around Hyde Park (the location of Obama’s home in Chicago and also where I work) trying to live the life of Barack Obama. He went to Barack’s barbershop where he had the following exchange with the barber:

Japanese Obama: “Ehh, Obama … cut?”

Zariff: “Yup.”

“Where, ehh, Obama, ehh, chair?”

“Right here.”

“This … Obama … chair?!”

Read the article! If for nothing else, you have to go watch the video on the Tribune website of this guy’s Obama impersonation. It’s spot-on!
