Apple’s legendary iPod ads have been nothing less than iconic, but a California street artists has turned the famous marketing campaign into an anti-Obama parody ahead of the President’s visit to area.

President Obama just wrapped up a quick fundraising tour around Los Angeles and San Francisco last week with a $32,000 a plate fundraiser at Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes’s house, and another with Nancy Pelosi, but the commander-in-chief was greeted by some scathing street art that highlighted some of his administration’s biggest scandals.

It’s unclear who the artist is behind the iSnoop ads as most of the images were anonymously posted by Imgur user watisee. Similar anti-Obama street art also greeted the president in Los Angeles with a some scandalous ads that are similar in style to the right-wing street artist Sabo.
