Obama Girl is questioned in a new 'ad' from the Romney Girls.
WASHINGTON (CNN) – In the dirty world of politics, even the Obama girl is subject to nasty attack ads.
Just when it seemed the folks at barelypolitical.com were content with their summer mega-hit online videos "Obama Girl" and "Obama Girl v. Giuliani Girl," the satirical Web site is out with an "attack ad" on Obama's No. 1 fan– this one said to be sponsored by three scantily clad blondes called the "Romney Girls."
The ad asks, "How much can we really trust Obama girl?" as it scrolls through several TV interviews and media reports of the Obama Girl actress, Amber Lee Ettinger, giving varying answers as to how much she supports the Illinois Democrat in real life.
"Why can't Obama Girl just pick a position?" the ad's narrator asks.
The ad ends with a quick a cameo from the three individuals identifying themselves as "The Romney Girls," as the words, "Paid for by the election committee of RomneyGirls For America" scrolls across the screen.
On the barelypolitical.com Web site, The Romney Girls are identified as "identical triplets, but they are as different as Romney's various viewpoints."
"Frightening Romney Girl likes Romney based on what he stood for in the 1980s. But Athletic-y Romney Girl likes him for completely different reasons – what he stood for in the 1990s. And Infant Romney Girl likes him for what people tell him he should stand for today."
The Web site's previous two online videos, "Obama Girl" and "Obama Girl vs. Giuliani Girl," became instant online hits, and are often cited as examples of how Internet videos are shaping the 2008 election.
Kevin Madden, a Romney spokesman, told CNN the campaign was unaware of the new video but, referencing the candidate's five sons, added, "I’d say that it looks like the five brothers have some serious competition. They better start working on their dance moves."
"Obama Girl" generated over three million views on YouTube, while "Giuliani Girl" clocked in at over one million.
