Overwizenening 

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Bloomberg Businessweek, fresh off their recent post-Hurricane Sandy cover, have another bold design following the 2012 US Presidential election. It features a rendition of what President Obama may look like at the end of his time in office, four years from now:

Barry Obombs, 4 years from now?

How accurate might it be? Only time will tell, but here’s a comparison of Obama from the beginning of his term in January 2009 and Tuesday night during his re-election speech:

Barry Obombs, 2008 vs. 2012

The hair has certainly got some more salt, but otherwise, he hasn’t fared too badly. If this trend continues, it seems likely that Bloomberg Businessweek may have overwizened him.

Meanwhile, the alternate Romney cover they prepared is quite disturbing, in an Uncanny Valley kind of way.
