Folks in the US - how is your new president doing?
Well in Japan, hes doing quite well as you can see from this photo taken yesterday. Softbank is the exclusive carrier for the iPhone in Japan and it looks like Obama-san is helping them sell mobile phones. The tag line is:-

Yes We Kau!

"Kau" meaning "to buy" in Japanese.

Obama-san also performs magic on Japanese TV as you can see from the video below.
