The Barack Obama Chinese impersonator

A Chinese Obama? You bet! There's a doppelganger for everyone!

It all began for the 29-year-old when he was first compared to Obama after the 2008 election.

"One day I cut my hair due to the hot weather and one of my colleagues who followed all the Obama stories at the time said to me, 'You look like Obama so much!'" Xiao told NBC News. "I didn't even know who Obama was at the time!"

Soon after, colleagues started to call him "Obama."

And although Xiao may bare a striking resemblance to the 44th president - he doesn't share the president's panache for English speeches.

"I don't speak English very well so I speak in fake English," Xiao said. "It sounds like English to those who don't speak English, but it's not English … even I don't know don't know what I was saying!"

The Obama-look-alike will also attend your private event in China - for the right price.

For a short speech in gibberish and then a few Chinese songs — his performances usually last around 10 minutes — Xiao is paid 10,000 yuan (around $1,500) per appearance.
