I had wondered what responses I would encounter after Obama’s recent election. What references would I find?
All over Italy, EVERY store in a given city launches a sale on the same day, cutting prices by 30-70%. I saw this sign, and immediately knew the reference…
And with the recent G8 Summit, I was seeing Obama’s face frequently in subway displays:
Italian friends at school have mentioned Barack Obama in conversation and their pleasure with his presidency. And Michele Obama is certainly noted, as well! In one of the Fashion Design presentations about trend-forecasting, the closing remarks spoke of Michele’s “New O Glamour”.
The world is taking note, certainly.
