Heh. While President Obama focused on himself during his speech in Cape Town, South Africa, Twitter focused on “Red Tie Guy.”


Some thought he looked like a young Obama.

Look-alike or not, he totally upstaged the president.



Ha! “Red Tie Guy” seems to have saved many from an Obama-induced snooze attack.

There can be only one “Red Tie Guy.”

Make it happen!

Is there a hashtag already?

Yes. Twitter delivers:

Indeed. Thanks for the distraction, #RedTieGuy!

Stay tuned … will more upstaging sensations enter the mix?


Never change, Twitter.
