Think you bear some resemblance to U.S. President Barack Obama? Well, your likeness can’t possibly be as uncanny as this guy’s, who had to make a website just to bring an end to all the confusion.
I Look Like Barack Obama is more than a personal website; it’s a public service. Chicago-dwelling software engineer Trevor (who asked us to withhold his last name) is informing the public that, hard as it is to believe, he is not the president of the United States.
Okay, so maybe they don’t look exactly alike — or at all alike, for that matter. But it’s a clever campaign and we’re totally going with it.
To address the skeptics that are perhaps less inclined to play along, Trevor used an advanced facial recognition software embedded deep within Microsoft Paint to illuminate the similarities.
Did the hair on your neck just stand up? Sure, there are a couple of differences you might be noticing. As Trevor puts it, “While both of us are half-white, Barack’s other half is black, but my other half is also white.” On the other hand, the two share 98.5% of the same DNA. Sure, they also share that same DNA with chimpanzees, but that’s beside the point.
