Chinese man looks like Obama - level 3
Meet Xiao. If you think he looks familiar, you're not wrong.
Xiao's resemblance to a certain world leader has gained him a part in a Chinese film. And despite not speaking English, he's somehow managed to capture the spirit of Barack Obama himself.
"My English is bad. So when I go on stage to speak, I speak a mix of real English and fake English. I make it up as I go. Nobody understands it. Let me show you."
“Hello, everybody! Ladies and gentlemen….”
Xiao plays a low-ranking gangster who looks like President Obama in a comedy film scheduled for release next summer. It's not his first on-screen appearance – in 2012, he competed in a popular TV talent show and has since played parts in online mini-series and experimental short films.
Xiao says his birthday is only one day apart from Obama's and they also share the same blood type. But for all the similarities, it doesn't appear that Xiao and Obama will be trading places any time soon.
Difficult words: gain (to get).
