Capitalize on Obama

A cottage industry is taking shape around our 44th President. Recession? Nonsense. Just sell Obama stuff. He'll be everywhere before long. People can't seem to get enough of the guy. His weekly Presidential radio address will be on YouTube. ( Damn! It already is. That's pretty presumptuous*.) You can play it over and over again and take comfort from his confident smile and kind eyes.Not enough for you? Listen to him read his own book on your iPhone. How about a t-shirt? The travel and hotel industries are seeing a nice surge in business thanks to the upcoming inauguration. And it won't end there. This is at least a 4-year celebration. I guarantee you this guy's image will be on your money some day, and now is the time for you to make money off of his image! And he can't sue you! This will make the Princess Diana celebrity industry look like a church bake sale.

Pretty soon little girls will be wanting to wear whatever the Obama girls are wearing and there's a very good chance that women will be requesting "the Michelle" at hair salons the world over. Black suits are in. And so are pale blue silk ties. Dog breeders will be doing a brisk business when the Obamas finally select a puppy. I expect more men to join gyms and try to hone their hoop skills. Body-surfing tours of Hawaii should be picking up shortly.

And every time some new tidbit of information leaks out of the Obama White House, like "Barack seen eating M&Ms!" you can bet the sales of whatever is mentioned will go up. I expect to see interviews of the White House chef so that we can all eat like the Obama family and buy the things they like.

This guy is already single-handedly improving the economy. Notice gas prices lately? Obama did that. Tomorrow's supposed to be the biggest shopping day of the year, but retailers are worried. Nonsense! It's called "Black Friday" for a reason now! I feel a sense of hope in the air, don't you? We can thank Obama. Why not start your own Rainbows and Unicorns store? Now's the time. Don't be late. Hurry, act now!

Let's get busy branding our Obama thongs and designing Obama tattoos. There's work to be done.

Yes you can.

  • I stared at the "Obama Reads Obama" image for five minutes in Google Reader confused and about ready to shout "Why would he read his own book?" at my computer screen.

    Then I realized Audible sells audiobooks.
