Not everyone is cut out for photo-ops
So, good cardboard doppelgängers can be the best option for VIPs and selfie-takers.
Such a solution is especially useful if the personage does not always live up to his or her larger-than-life image face to face. A few added or subtracted inches in the right places can be effected only in cutouts, not in the actual person. Indeed, the people posing with the Mexican mayor’s cutout do not appear to be annoyed. Maybe they found it less taxing to be close to a silent leader who did not have any problems with wherever they made him stand and for unlimited lengths of time. As Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has been denied permission to attend a mayors’ meet in Denmark, he can consider sending a cutout.
