It has been a few weeks now since I last posted something Obama related, not that the fashion world hasn’t been punctuated almost daily with a new label pushing the Obama cause with some special edition T-shirt or sneaker- something that has been unheard of for any other Presidential Candidate. Could you really see Clinton’s face on the toe box of a Dunk? Neither can I, Monica Lewinsky’s box on the other hand… Ho-ho-ho, I jest. It has got to the stage now where you could have an entire weeks worth of wardrobe clad head to toe in top fashion brands bearing the visage of Barack.

Some more Barack action for you after last weeks “O-Face” debacle where I, possibly incorrectly attributed the inspiration for the Barack “O-Face” Obama t-shirt to that scene in “Office Space” and was subsequently correct by Jason whose explanation does make more sense. In my defense may I say that on the UNDR-CRWN website “Office Space” is attributed as the inspiration for said T, so you know I’m not just making this stuff up. Just saying.
Tit for tat over I draw your attention to the t-shirt Idris Elba was wearing for the new Guy Ritchie film “RocknRolla” which premiered in London last night. Big Driis the Londoner was showing his support for the Democrat candidate in highly under dressed form, looking more like he was repainting his shed rather than on the red carpet at a world premiere. Someone needs to set a dress code, seriously. Scruffiness aside this is another example of Obama’s visage penetrating into pop culture in a way that is unprecedented for a presidential candidate. If Barack wins in November will he be the coolest president the world has ever seen? Because we are all whole heartedly buying into the brand Obama.
Others who graced that red carpet last night looking sharper than Idris included Guy Ritchie, Madonna- who wore more than a leotard an act which our eyes thank you for Madge, Gerrard Butler, Thandie Newton, Toby Kebbell and Leon Jackson to name but a few.

The man is back, and seemingly the t-shirt world cannot get enough of the 2008 Democratic Presidential Candidate. Barack “O-Face” Obama is gracing many a piece of apparel in the lead up to the election, the inspiration for this latest piece from UNDR-CRWN is random at best and I’m failing to see any tangible link between the O-Face scene from Office Space and our man B.O, once again proving that humour is just Barack Obama set against almost anything.
