KFC in China has a recent advertisement which features a look-alike of President Barack Obama to market its Soft Roll Fish Fillet sandwich.

According to Obamafoodorama, the ad uses Obama's "Change" campaign slogan as its theme.

"Change - not only for America but for the whole world. Not only for your mom but for you, for your stomach, for a better taste," the Politico quoted the Obama look-alike as saying to a cheering, flag-waving crowd.

A humongous fish fillet sandwich then drops on top of him as the commercial's announcer describes its ingredients as 11 herbs and spices.

The ad was unveiled before President Hu Jintao's state visit to the United States earlier this month.

"The ad was created in Hong Kong for the Hong Kong market only. It was meant to be a spoof and no disrespect was intended. It is no longer airing and will not be re-aired," a spokesman for Yum! Brands, which operates KFC, said in a statement.
