The Obama Impersonator sensation on youtube
Posted by elin ahmadpour (+29) 12 years ago
I was watching the news recently and came across a guy who does a very good impersonation of Barack Obama. He's known as the dancing Obama. His name is Iman Crosson. He's a former waiter trying to make it in Show Biz. He writes, edits, and posts his videos on youtube.
Here's the link to one of his videos. This guy rocks!!!!

Maybe the guy could replace Fred Armisen on SNL.

Funny. But I don't think he looks much like Obama although he really sounds like him. But Obama would never say "I can care less".

Definitely looks more like him than Fred Armissen - Armissen is lame

I don't care so much if a person looks like the person their spoofing on SNL, but they have to at least sound like them. Armisen does neither.

He doesn't even attempt to speak with Obama's cadence - you could have any voice and do a recognizable Obama impression if you tried - he's a bum.

Besides, isn't it a little faux pas to wear blackface?

Or is SNL cool now because they just ripped the ish out of Sarah Palin?
