Hot for Hillary

First, there was ObamaGirl, now there’s “Hot for Hillary” in the Crush Video Primary. I think my money’s on Hott4Hill right now. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Hott4Hill has a blog.

Thanks to Oliver Willis for the link.

Update: I threw together this post as I was going to bed last night, but Tama has an interesting read on both the ObamaGirl and Hott4Hill videos and their use of self-conscious parody to mock standard “crush” music videos. They also play as a nice send-up of the sexualization of American politics and political figures.

Update 2: Just noticed the continued discussion of”Hot4Hill” on the H4H blog, including a discussion of children participating in a video with quite a bit of sexual innuendo (and, yes, I’m directly linking to a post that’s linked to me, which is way too “meta” for a Friday).
