[复制链接]
发表于 2010-3-23 10:11:06 | 显示全部楼层 |阅读模式
长相酷似美国总统奥巴马,印度尼西亚一位34岁的青少年杂志摄影师在几年间变身成为超级明星。在印尼当地以及新加坡、马来西亚和菲律宾等东南亚国家,他代言的广告随处可见,在这些地区的电视和网络上也能经常看到他“奥巴马式”的笑容。他坦承自己是“冒牌货”,但同时表示因为奥巴马,自己的生活发生了180度的大转弯:过去他很不喜欢照镜子,因为不喜欢自己的相貌;但是现在看着镜中的自己却很满意,觉得自己是超级明星。在不断接手新代言的同时他也表示,希望奥巴马能够获得连任,这样他的超级明星事业也能够继续下去。

Striding purposefully, his smile lighting up a rainy afternoon, Barack Obama appears to have arrived to tour an elementary school he attended as a boy. But wait. It's not him. The US president is back in Washington, D.C., shepherding his health-care bill toward passage.% N* _' o. p* U& T7 N0 L

Since his sister told him in 2007 that he looked like the then-presidential candidate, Anas' face and megawatt smile have been seen on Southeast Asian TV and the Internet, pitchingover-the-counter medicine and other products.  S" Y! }' a$ k" N! X2 D& J

Anas is the first to admit it: He's an impostor. But he'll also tell you this: He's in incredible demand.2 T( z$ a  M) n& R4 m+ {

"I've got so much work I can't handle it all," he said. He's even penned an autobiography, "Because of Obama." The jacket review says Anas' resemblance to the president has "turned his life around 180 degrees."

It hasn't been easy.

Then a colleague at the magazine asked him to pose as Obama wearing a power suit, in front of a U.S. flag. At first he refused.

The married father of two children is rarely home these days. On a recent day, a horde of reporters followed him on a tour of the elementary school Obama once attended.

Anas sat in the classroom where the future president studied. He mugged for the cameras and spoke a few lines in English. The moment he opened his mouth, however, the differences became apparent.6 y7 f1 d9 w/ ]

Otherwise, Anas said, he hasn't altered his appearance much for the role. He wears his hair just like he did in high school in Bandung, a few hours' drive from Jakarta. But he did shape his eyebrows to look more like those of the president.

So Anas will keep posing, smiling and cashing the checks. For now, he is keeping his own brand of hope: that Obama will win a second term in the White House.
