President Obama offended more than a few people in Norway by skipping a number of events that are traditional for the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize to attend, but at one event Obama made an appearance and might not even know it:

…he skipped several other activities, including lunch with the king, a news conference at Oslo’s Grand Hotel, CNN’s traditional interview with the prize winner and a “Save the Children” benefit concert, where organizers replaced him with an Obama cardboard cutout. Obama also won’t be around for Friday’s Nobel Concert.

The trick in creating a convincing Obama cardboard cutout is to also make an accompanying cardboard teleprompter.

Nobody at the G20 meeting seemed to notice it was a cardboard cutout instead of the actual president:
