Obama, like Bush Jr, is able to maintain his suspiciously consistent clone-smile. Both always have a switch-on perfect smile ready for the camera. Switch-on perfect, switch-on perfect, switch-on perfect; it never changes.
On Wednesday 23rd September 2009, Obama hosted a reception at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. During this event, he stood for 135 separate photographs with visiting foreign dignitaries who were in town for a major UN meeting. As this rapid-fire slideshow from Eric Spiegelman demonstrates,
The US President has exactly the same smile in every shot. Spiegelman put his compilation on Vimeo shortly after the Met event and gave it the title: “Barack Obama’s amazingly consistent smile.” (The 135 raw photoshots he used can be found on Flickr here.)
. . . inhumanly charming, isn’t he?
