Actually, it's an ad for Gaba, a one-on-one English instruction school.

Bush looks like he's had Botox injections in that video....either that or some clumsy touch-ups in the video-room.

That's not bush...

Bush lookalike maybe. Creepy drag queen maybe...

Unless George likes doing the Geisha thing.

That's just strange. The guy has GW's eyes, good likeness, but not close enough not to look downright creepy.

I took it to be a Japanese actor in lots and lots of makeup and contacts.

I'm with badstone. Lots of makeup. Creepy is right.
And they were shamed by the 3 hostages? Yeesh.

His hair did not match, think only his face was edited in.

An older, funnier English Language Lesson commercial comes to mind [2 meg, QT, audio portion NSFW] Also here (Realplayer, with popups, audio still NSFW).

the impersonator's name is Brent Mendenhall... I know this because I'm filming a documentary about him right now.
