Obi-Wan Kenobi 2012: ‘Our Only Hope’

Subscribe to our Newsletters

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.”
