She turned heads and made headlines during the 2008 election with her scantily clad rendition of “Obama Girl” and now she’s back. But this time Amber Lee Ettinger is singing a different tune.

Like many Americans, Ettinger seems to be rethinking her earlier choice after three years of President Barack Obama.

“Obama Girl?” calls the president’s look-a-like to begin the 2012 release: “Glease,” to which Ettinger replies, “What’s it to you dud?”




Performed as a take-off on the hit TV series “Glee” and sung to the tune of “You’re the One That I want” from “Grease,” the new video shows the still vivacious Ettinger questioning her allegiance to Obama this time around.

The original "I Got A Crush On Obama" went viral on YouTube with lines like "Universal health care reform, it makes me warm," and drew more than three million hits and nearly 10,000 comments in its first two months.

Intended to look like a “cheesy” R&B video by Ben Relles who featured Obama Girl on his Barely Political YouTube channel, the initial song has now been viewed more than 24 million times and was named by Newsweek as a top 10 meme of the decade. It was also named as a Webby's top Internet moment of all time.

The new video features popular Obama impersonator, Alphacat, who sings lines like: “Oil spills and occupyin.’ I’ma losin’ my cool” and “So much left, so much left for me to do!”

“You better step up cuz I need that man,” chides Ettinger, with lines like, “If my old crush on you was true. You better step up. Cuz across the land. All our hearts were bet on you” and “You wanna lose this election? You’re too smooth, don’t betray. Or I’ll hesitate in my affection.”

Here is the original Obama Girl video from 2007:
