‘Romney Girl’ Mocks Life in His World as ‘Taxless,’ ‘Fantastic’
With Obama Girl’s crush on the president fading since her provocative 2008 YouTube video, another scantily clad YouTube lover has stepped up to fill the candidate-crush void, this time mocking Mitt Romney as “fantastic.”
Obama Girl was infatuated, but Romney Girl is satirically infuriated by her candidate of choice. In a parody music video set to the tune of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” Romney Girl portrays a Swiss woman taking advantage of the perks that come with Romney’s wealth, like fur coats, hot tubs and shiny red convertibles, all while not-so-subtly criticizing the candidate for his $255 million net worth.
“I’m a Romney girl, in a Romney world. Life is taxless. It’s fantastic,” Romney Girl sings in the video, produced by progressive activist group the Agenda Project. “Silver-tip your hair, tax shelters everywhere, outsource nation, Bain is his creation.”
The three-minute video goes on to criticize Romney satirically for founding the investment firm Bain Capital, having offshore bank accounts and not releasing his tax returns. A condensed one-minute version of the music video is part of an Agenda Project ad buy running in New York, Washington, D.C., Denver, Wisconsin and Raleigh, N.C.
