China is definitely no stranger to wacky marketing. As shown on Reuters, the Chinese are capitalizing on Obama's visit to China next week. An artist from Beijing has made a bronze effigy modeled after an issue of Time Magazine where Obama was on the front cover. This bronze effigy can be lit up to symbolize "Obama on fire" (in the good way). WTF. A hairdresser is shown advertising crew cuts as "Obama haircuts". And get this. In the boutiques they have a logo with Obama wearing Mao's cap and they call it "Oba Mao". Lol, that's a good one. After all, Obama has been pulling some textbook socialist moves since he got into power.
