AOL News reports that KFC China ran an Obama-themed commercial in advance of Chinese President Hu Jintao's January visit to the United States. 

"Change, not only for your mom, but for you, your stomach, for a better taste!" the sorta look-alike proclaims in the commercial, before being crushed by a giant sandwich.
