obama-sushi

The Japanese just can’t get enough of Obama. In this article (via Erin who found it via caitlinomara on Twitter), we get to see a ridiculous Obama Sushi platter. It doesn’t stop with his face, though, which is made from small shrimp and rice for the skin, black sesame seeds for the hair, and processed fish paste for the teeth (so that’s how he keeps his teeth so shiny white!). Let’s take a look at the final product, plus how all the little pieces were made.

obama-sushi-car

This right here, though it doesn’t quite look it, is one of several cars which appear on the main platter. The window is made of cucumber, and the lights are made from mountain burdock root (山ゴボウ). Vroom Vroom!

american-flag-sushi

The American flag portion was made with lots of raw fish (what else?). The red stripes are made from Tuna, and the white made from raw squid. This is going to be the best portion, for sure.

usa

Of course, nothing is complete without a big “USA” somewhere in it. To do this, leftover cooked egg was put in a food processor (will it blend?) with some rice. Let me tell you now, that’s only one way to make yellow rice. Back in my day…

smiley

Also made from the “yellow rice” were these smiley faces. Won’t be so happy when they get eaten. Well, it’s about time, let’s look at the finished product!

obama-sushi2

There it is with the master himself (Mr. Kawazumi). I love the “V” up in the top middle area (V for victory!), and I also love how tasty it looks. Time to go make some absolutely retarded looking sushi in my own kitchen!

If you want to be completely awesome, please Stumble or Digg this suckah!

    That's crazy! I thought just Obama-face sushi was great, but the platter is fantastic.

    I like the random cars on the border.

    That's so amazing, such great creativity! I wonder how his face tastes like?

    Oh man, now I'm really hungry! That is awesome.

    tastes like HOPE :P

    great post!! Yes we can….dugg and stumbled

    I just made agedashidofu (well, sort of) and put it on a bed of Peruvian-style rice (don't ask and I won't tell). Obama's smiling face would have looked good on top. I would poured the dashi sauce to make it look like he had face diarrhea.

    BECAUSE I CAN !

    It does look good! Though.. I think I'd feel a bit awkward chomping into the president's face.. ^^;

    Wow, I am inspired. That's pretty creative right there. I wouldn't be able to eat it. I'd want to preserve and frame it!

    omg…

    first there were obama burgers…
    now obama sushi…

    o.o” wonder what's next?
    obama coffee? xD
    [hey, that sounds promising =X ]

  • http://michaeldowney.net Mike

    That is quite truly awesome! I've never seen sushi as intricate as this!!

  • http://dudiduwalalalisa.blogspot.com/ Lisa

    haha kool*~ xD so many random obama stuff

  • V.S.

    First Sushi……..what can I say, looks good, but can it change the economy?
    On an oddly humorous side-note, there is a sliver of irony in “Obama sushi”.
    Mr. President-in-chief was hailed as a “Messiah” (by god knows how many people). The irony becomes apparent when you remember how many people the OTHER Messiah fed with FISH, and then compare that to how many jobless, and possibly homeless people President Obama has to feed (and clothe, and put to work, etc…).
    If you don't get it, go read the bible (never thought I'd hear myself saying THAT).

    P.S. In response to Kirara Suzu's “Obama coffee” comment. There already is such a thing. It's called Kenyan coffee. =)

    honestly I can't understand this massive obama attack in Japan.
    Ok it was funny during the ellections, it was funny seeing obama kun in Yatterman…but
    it's kind of boring right now.

  • Shift7

    Fantastic; this made my day!

  • shah

    Looks great. I am sure Obama appreciates all the creativity he has stimulated.

  • Melissa

    That's awesome, I want some now :(

    Sorry for the two comments but I just wanted to ask, do you have any idea why the Japanese people like Obama so much? I know that he's cool and everything (his cool is over 9,000) But I just can't figure out why they would have a connection with them. His life story doesn't seem to correlate with Japanese culture, or do you think it's just a fad?

    I like sushi and all kinds of Japanese food and speak the language too. Obama seems to be Japanese name as there is a town call Obama shi in Japan but totally not related to the President.

    As for “Obama coffee,” would Hawaiian Kona coffee make more sense, since the President is a native of Hawaii?

    I think they got the colour of his face entirely right. I mean, maybe it's just me, but I think that his skin is getting more yellow everytime I see him on TV. But maybe my TV is just strange.
