This is Lululemon’s kinda cute, rather creepy “Ombama” ad currently featured on the back cover of the Jan/Feb issue of Yoga Journal. Something about it just weirds us out.
Their explanation: “Yoga brings about transformation and change, just as a new president does. ” lululemon flickr
Except Obama isn’t a yogi as far as we know (that would be nice).
UPDATE: We figured it out!
So besides the disturbing fact that Lululemon used the likeness of President Obama to sell yoga-inspired clothing, we figured out why this ad is especially weird! We were peering at the image and noticed something we hadn’t seen before.
Is that a Natarajasana tattoo on his arm? click for the enlarged image…
