How does Japanese company E Mobile sell cell phones? By capitalizing on Barack Obama's political success through depicting him as a real monkey. A monkey in a presidential suit, but a monkey nonetheless. What were the creative heads of this horrid racist commercial smoking?

At least the recent controversial TheSockObama sock monkey had some ground for arguing it was a misguided cuddly toy. But depicting Obama as a MONKEY giving a speech to HUMANS is unjustifiable.
