The president of Weatherproof decided to take the image of the president of the United States of America and put it on display in Times Square. According to the Huffington Post who heard it from Associated Press who heard it from Sally after gym class Weatherproof saw this pic of Obama in AP and thought it would be totally rad if he modeled for them. So they took the pic and put it on a billboard. Then Obama had to say, "Uhm. Not cool guys." Since he's the pres they have two weeks to remove it. So enjoy it while it lasts NYC.
Meanwhile, some smaller companies seem to coast by while using Obama's likeness. Take this lil deli in Fort Greene for example (thanks to Shante Smalls for the picture).
