Vanessa Hudgens will replace Amber Lee Ettinger as the next Obama Girl.
The Barack Obama campaign got a boost in June of 2007 from the online video I got a Crush on Obama, which became very popular on YouTube. Ettinger, who had previously won a couple of pageants and worked as a dancer in videos, became something of a celebrity due to her appearance as the Obama Girl.
Hudgens will make a new video for the Obama campaign that is expected to draw a lot of attention.
As the presidential campaign moves on, Barack Obama's campaign decided it needed to step up its viral internet efforts. With Vanessa Hudgens as a huge draw in Internet searches, especially after her nude photo appeared, many believe she would be a big help to his campaign.
Spokesmen for both Hudgens and the Obama campaign denied that Hudgens would appear nude in the video, though rumors suggest a blooper with Hudgens giving Obama a nude lap dance may be intentionally leaked.
