The “I Got a Crush on Obama” video has taken the internet by surprise. The video, which was posted June 13th on YouTube has received over over 540,000 views. It features a very provocative, to say the least, actress showing her affection towards Senator Barack Obama. Obama campaign officials claim they had no part in the video, which I find to be untrue.
The video cost several thousand dollars to produce….but why would somebody produce it for no reason? It was definitely endorsed by Obama campaign officials. Many speculate that officials are denying that they funded the video because some of Obama’s supporters may find the content “questionable”. The video is definitely a little too provocative for my tastes, and I think its going to end up hurting Obama’s campaign in the long run.
