With Obama finally in office, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. Let’s celebrate with five items that show just how much he became a part of American pop culture. #5 The Barack Obama Cabbage Patch Doll – Sold on eBay
#4 Run DC Shirt – $20 Who doesn’t find this shirt totally awesome? An homage to run DMC as well as a play on word. Love it!
#3 Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” image in Legos, by Sean Kenney. The piece measures 20? x 25? and contains 1,275 LEGO pieces. The original piece is selling for $695. (Looks like it was taken down.) The Shepart Fairey poster was cool enough. In legos, even cooler.
#2 Obama SpokePOV – A crafty Flickr user turned six SpokePOV lighting systems into a single Obama logo.
#1 Chia Obama Handmade Decorative Planter – $20 on Amazon. Cha cha cha chia! You can get Obama in happy or determined. No joke!
