Obama Fake Mustache Is 'Fantasy' Of The President's (VIDEO)

President Obama used to rock a much bigger hair 'do -- and a much darker one. But beyond that, POTUS' "beauty" look has stayed pretty consistent. So could you imagine Obama with a fake mustache?

That's the look Obama dreams about, he said recently, when he's traveling the world as president. In an exclusive interview with Israel's Channel 2, which aired on Thursday night ahead of his big Israel trip, President Obama said that he often dreams about putting on a disguise -- say, a fake mustache -- and just blending in:

"Sometimes I have this fantasy, that I can put on a disguise, wear a fake mustache and I could wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation, or go down to a university and meet with some students in a setting where it wasn't as formal."

He chuckled to the interviewer, "You've tapped into something that chafes at me."

We totally get the desire to just mingle with "regular folks" and not have to worry about all the attention -- in fact, Michelle Obama often talks about her desire to do normal things like shop at the supermarket. But Mr. President, if you have to pick on disguise, may we advise against the ridiculously silly fake mustache? Take a cue from your wife and just try a pair of oversized sunglasses.

Because let's face it, a mustache is not necessarily your best look:
