Photo: Meet President Obama's Look alike

The similarities between Indonesian photographer IIham Anas and President Obama has made the 36 year old a TV star in his country.

Anas has appeared in several TV ads. "I see my resemblance to Obama as a blessing," he says. "I used to look at the mirror and I had a negative perception of myself."

He regularly gets stopped in airports by Obama admirers. He has taken to wearing a hat and sunglasses on the street to avoid the inevitable questions. He is a huge fan of Obama, and is careful with the work he chooses, refusing jobs he feels might be controversial or reflect badly on Obama. Now he travels the world, lending his likeness to various charities and causes.
