Clint Eastwood Talks to an Empty Chair, Viewers Post Their Own ‘Invisible Obamas’ (VIDEO)
Clint Eastwood spoke at the GOP convention on Thursday and showed his true acting skills…
At a moment during Eastwood’s ad lib speech, in which he praised the Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Clint began talking to an empty chair…
I think they call that method acting.
Clint addressed the chair as if it were President Barack Obama. He voiced some of his concerns to the, er, President, slash, chair.
Clint: “So Mr. President, how do you handle promises you’ve made?”
Chair: Begrudging silence.
This prompted viewers and Twitter users to post their own empty chair photos, slash, invisible Obamas. #Eastwooding became an internet phenomenon by Friday morning.
A Twitter account called Invisible Obama now has almost 50,000 followers. “Quick. Turn on MSNBC. I’m going to be all over it right now,” tweeted @InvisibleObama. ”Well just my chair, unless u have invisible glasses. Or ur Clint Eastwood.”
President Obama tweeted the photo below with this remark, “This seat’s taken.”
