An Obama Satan look-alike is making top news today. On the March 17 episode of "The Bible," Satan was portrayed by an actor who looks strikingly similar to Barack Obama -- and people noticed. According to UPI, social networks were ablaze with chatter of the "coincidence," some people thinking it wasn't a coincidence at all.
Fans of the popular History Channel show couldn't stop talking about the similarities between "Satan" and Obama, and soon a still shot went viral. People have been passing around the photo all day today and there is an ongoing debate about it.
The Obama Satan look-alike is actually Mehdi Ouzaani who many believe looks like an older version of the president. Whether or not that was the intention of the show's creator, Roma Downey, remains to be seen. Sure, it could be a coincidence that Ouzaani scored the part of Satan and he looks Barack Obama, but a lot of people aren't buying it. Some believe that there is a subliminal message going on.
Whether or not you think that Ouzaani's character resembles the president, you might be surprised to learn just how many people made the connection almost instantly. Thousands of people watch "The Bible" and many of them took to Twitter or Facebook to immediately see if they were the only ones who "caught" it.
The Obama Satan look-alike could be in more episodes of "The Bible." What is your take on the whole thing?
