[Photos] Vietnam Steps up Its Meme Game Ahead of Obama Visit

Vietnamese netizens are flexing their meme skills ahead of United States president Barack Obama's visit to the country.

Facebook user Lam Tran, for instance, recently posted a series of Photoshopped images speculating on the fate of President Obama's motorcade during his visit while highlighting some average Vietnam problems at the same time. The images feature heavy flooding, a bánh mì purchase through a car window and a procession of red and blue vehicles – a nod, perhaps, to Hanoi's recent color-coded signage.

We're not sure that any of these will actually happen, but Vietnam's certainly got a sense of humor about the impending Obama visit.
