Obama Pop...

As you may know, the French have come up with the word "entrepreneur" and Obama is so popular in France that some French businessman has found a way to sell the president-elect as a high energy drink.

The businessman, Jean-Jacques Attisso has made has made 100 cans simply by sticking his labels ("change we can believe in'') on cans of energy drink.

He said he has been handing them out to youths close to where he works, hoping that Mr Obama's success will serve as an inspiration to them. Mr Attisso said Mr Obama symbolises hope for a new generation. The soda will raise money for an educational charity based in one of the troubled Paris suburbs as it goes up for auction in January.

(as you can see on the video, he still needs to work on his English accent but at least he's trying, which is better than many of my students)

There has been an Obama energy drink for quite a while. I reviewed it for my website and it has been very popular bringing in a lot of traffic from overseas.
