Obi-Wan Kenobi 2012: ‘Our Only Hope’
While driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu, Calif., this weekend we captured this offbeat political bumper sticker promoting the imaginary campaign of one Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The fictitious candidate is the brainchild of Kari Ann Kelly, a graphic designer in Suwanee, Georgia, who sells the bumper stickers through her online Etsy storefront. Among Kelly’s other campaign stickers inspired by “Star Wars” characters: “Han Solo 2012: A Straight Shooter for President;” “Skywalker2012: The Force is strong with this one;” and “Help You I Can: Yoda 2012.”
