Officials asked a vendor at the National Rifle Association convention in Houston last week to remove the life-size bleeding shooting targets that resembled President Barack Obama from its display, though the stand was still allowed to sell the mannequins.

The vendor, Zombie Industries, sells a range of three-dimensional, life-size mannequin targets that bleed when shot but the NRA felt one of the models, "Rocky," too closely resembled Obama. After two days of displaying the target, Zombie Industries was asked Sunday to remove it.

"Someone from the NRA came by and asked us to remove it," a Zombie Industries booth worker told BuzzFeed. "They are just scared some liberal reporter will come by and start b—ing. But ya know, he does look very familiar."

A BuzzFeed reporter asked if the Obama likeness was intentional.

"Let's just say I gave my Republican father one for Christmas," the worker said.


The company's website describes the "Rocky" zombie as "HIGHLY dangerous due to his quick wit and strength… he was last seen screaming something like, 'Zombie Industries believes in America!'"

Other targets include a terrorist dressed as Osama bin Laden, a clown named BoBo, and a Nazi soldier.

Some observed that "Rocky" looks a lot like "Obama Satan" from the History Channel show "The Bible." In a March episode, the actor who played the devil bore a striking resemblance to the president, though "The Bible" producers denied the comparison.
