Even a dictator has to get his hug on. I think we can all say that we have never seen a picture of Saddam Hussein holding a stuffed animal. But thanks to artist Chunlong Sun who specializes in retouching, that image is now a sweet reality. The Chinese artist has recently created a hilarious and slightly weird photo series showing what it would look like if some of the world's worst leaders were holding stuffed animals.

The series is called "Celebrity" and shows intimate portraits of five world leaders holding stuffed teddies. What's even more impressive is that the artist used some look-alike actors to create this fascinating series. And the before and after photos of the stand-ins are pretty incredible as well.
