Chia Obama: Does our consumerism know no bounds?


Nothing says Hope like planting a seed on a bald bust of the President of the United States and hoping it grows.

Enter: Chia Obama

Yes, we live in a world where people will buy a Chia Obama, a Chia Lincoln, and even a Chia George Washington.

I had a Chia lamb back in the day. My grandma got it for me for Christmas. I spread out the seeds, applied the fertilizer, and my sheep appeared to have gone through a long series of chemo treatments followed by being trapped in a burning barn. The grass was anything but even and mostly barely there.

I was devastated. On TV it was magic “Ch-ch-ch Chia” and boom there was a beautiful coat, or afro, or wig. Heck even the statue of Liberty has a Chia head o’ hair.

One other thought about those commercials. How is it that the new Chia Obama commercial looks like it was produced in 1985.? What kind of branding is crappy production value?

Such is the magic of Chia.


I can’t lie. I thought it was hilarious when I saw the commercial. Then again, I’m easily amused.

Let your voice be heard!
