Obama Girl

"Hey B, it's me. If you're there, pick up. I was just watching you on C-SPAN." Amber Lee Ettinger, better known as Obama Girl, became an Internet hit for a video, made by, in which she lip-synched to her crush, then Senator Barack Obama. The three-minute video features Ettinger professing her love for him at various New York City spots: she dances on the subway, finds random strangers to dance with her in Central Park — all while crooning, "I got a crush on Obama." The video, which has been viewed more than 17 million times since it was originally posted in June 2008, features lines sure to get stuck in your head like "You're into border security, let's break this border between you and me" and "You can Ba-rock me tonight."
