...And Borderline Janky

They say you shouldn’t live in the past.

But they said that before they saw this trove of amazing-borderline-janky Obama kitsch in the form of wristwatches that just resurfaced on the web. 

Anyway, we thought it prudent you know about this ASAP, before all the good “Llamas for Obama” watches get snapped up.  

As the story goes, the very reputable-sounding webshop ObamaWatches.com churned out dozens upon dozens of commemorative watches throughout Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns—three of which are enshrined in the Smithsonian, no less—and since they’ve still got a few tickers left over from that wild 2008-2016 ride, they’ve relaunched the site and are selling them off in limited edition.

You could go with the aforementioned Llamas for Obama watch. (No we weren’t making that up.)

Or the more practical Barack Around the Clock option.

Then there’s the pièce de résistance: The Extremely Limited President Obama Innagural FlipWatch.

Totally worth every penny.
