A life-sized cut-out of a cowboy Clint Eastwood has stood on a trail overlooking a Southern California road for months, but now a pair of chairs have been set next to it, one also a cardboard cut-out, the other an actual wooden chair.

They are a clear reference to Eastwood's interaction with an imaginary President Barack Obama in an empty chair at the Republican National Convention last week.

Eastwood and the chair have fuelled a social media storm that is shown no signs of slowing.

An artist erected the cut-outs of Eastwood and other Hollywood western heroes along the trail in Glendale, but it is not clear where the chairs came from.
