Obama Stares At Awesome Things
Wednesday, March 31, 2010 17:16 GMTIRVINE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) President Barack Obama has to feign interest in pretty boring things on the job.
Lucky for him, dweeb designer Dean Trippe is giving him way cooler stuff to stare at on the blog, Barack Obama Looking At Awesome Things.
It all started when New York Magazine collected photos of the prez skillfully faking interest at the most mundane things. Trippe then Photoshopped the images so it looks as if the president were checking out really exciting stuff instead.
For example, a picture of Obama looking intently at a random piece of machinery now shows him staring at hatching baby dinosaurs.
Trippe says Obama is crazy good at faking fascination, but it cant be easy.
He explains, I feel like the presidency is three different jobs. Theres the governing stuff, but he also has to be Captain America a symbol for the nation. He also has to be a funny regular dude and tour these factories in the Midwest.
