After Clint Eastwood’s ad-libbed conversion with an empty chair last night at the Republican National Convention, it didn’t take long for Invisible Obama to appear on (and, ahem, disappear from) Twitter. But Invisible Obama is so last night; say hello to Sand Obama.

As sand sculpture firm “Team Sandtastic” put the finishing touches on a 16-foot sculpture of President Barack Obama outside of the EpiCentre in Charlotte, N.C., Sand Obama made a command appearance on Twitter right on schedule.

A giant Mount Rushmore-like sculpture of the president? What cult of personality?

Sand Obama does look a little bit like that other guy.

As if to prove that Sand Obama is his own man, the sculpture engaged the president himself.
