Back in 2008, the world was introduced to the romantic aspirations of young Amber Lee Ettinger, or as you may know her, The Obama Girl. Her video “I Got A Crush On Obama” went viral prior to the presidential election and ended up spawning dozens of parodies, including one from the folks at Saturday Night Live. Her quick rise to internet fame also earned her interviews on various cable news shows and other TV appearances.
Her crush on Obama has apparently lessened in the past four years, as she recently told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that she’s not sure who she’s voting for this time around. Of course, that leaves a giant opening for a new internet admirer. Who will step of and fill the void left by Obama Girl? Who has an undying, internet-friendly crush on our Commander in Chief?
Well, this time around it’s not another pretty Obama Girl. This time it’s a dude.
Meet Obama Boy:
Of course, the entire idea of Obama Boy must have be precipitated by President Obama’s announcement that he made officially supporting gay marriage. “At a certain point I’ve just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” he said.
The video’s star, Justin Brown, might not see the level of instant stardom that Obama Girl achieved – but you have to admit, it’s a catchy little number.
