Obama Girl, Giuliani Girls, Leah Kaufman Pay Respects to U.S. Troops
Barely Political, the organization that created the Obama Girl and Giuliani Girls videos have gone in a different direction with their latest release, I Like A Boy. Rather than focus on a presidential candidate, the video, which stars Obama Girl Amber Lee Ettinger, Giuliani Girl Rebeca Dipietro and rapper Mims, salutes U.S. troops.
Partnering with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Association, the video features U.S. soldiers, their wives, girlfriends, friends and family singing along to the Leah Kaufman-penned and performed song, "I Like A Boy." Creator Ben Relles tells us, "It's sort of a a rockin' non-partisan salute to the US Troops - men and women - serving our county." Proceeds from the sale of the song, available on iTunes, will go to the Iraq Afghanistan Veterans Association.
We like what Barely Political is doing. Sure, it's using sexy women to attract attention but it's doing so in a way that's not salacious and degrading but, rather, fun and playful. And, particularly with this latest piece of work, it's being...well, barely political and saluting the troops no matter what anyone's political affiliation might be or how they feel about the war.

It's fine. But, please, stop using the same exact animated hummingbird over and over and over again.
The PR stunt of using wives and donating proceeds distracts from how bad this song is and how annoying the "girls" theme has become.
