Obama Girl vs. Giuliani Girl

The headline is no joke: The Obama Girl creators have produced a follow-up to the YouTube mega-hit, starring the Obama girl, and a new character, named Giuliani Girl.

Two scantily clad ladies, and their equally attired friends have a dance- and sing- off on the streets of New York (reminiscent of a certain movie), crooning words of adoration about Barack Obama and Rudy Giuliani. The video ends with a pillow fight. They even take time to mock a Kucinich Girl character.

As if it wasn't hot enough already!

A reminder that these "Girl" videos are produced by a site called BarelyPolitical.com, and are not officially endorsed by the Obama or Giuliani campaigns. In today's Post, BarelyPolitical.com founder Ben Relles says, "We weren't really thinking about politics. ... We were just interested in making something really viral, getting a lot of attention." Mission accomplished.

UPDATE 12:40 p.m.: The Obama campaign's press office says it won't comment on the video.

UPDATE 1:56 p.m.: The Giuliani camp takes a pass as well. And if you try getting to BarelyPolitical.com it doesn't seem to be working. Did the site crash?

More on this as we get it...
