See the people making money out of their resemblance to Barack Obama.

Can you imagine making money just because you sort of resemble a famous figure? That is exactly what Barack Obama impersonator Reggie Brown is cashing in on. Once an award-winning comedian, in 2008, Reggie was already pretty much making it in the entertainment industry -- but he truly hit the jackpot when people started pointing out his striking resemblance to former US president, Barack Obama.

He has since appeared on numerous TV channels and shows such as Disney, Nickelodeon and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He now calls himself the world’s premier Obama impersonator.

Unfortunately for him though, he's not the only Obama doppelganger on the block. Indonesian Ilham Anas is also very famous in his country for being an Obama look-alike and often gets jobs impersonating him. He told Viral Thread, "I am very careful about the jobs I take. I refuse anything that I think may be controversial or look bad on the real Obama.”

Jose Oliveira from Cape Verde has also become a hit at home for his resemblance to the ex-pres.
And here are a few others who really should try making a career out of their resemblance while they still can.
