Amber Lee Ettinger, the young woman who became an Internet sensation by writhing in her bikini and lip-synching “I’ve got a crush on Obama” during the 2008 presidential election, has got a new gig. And, yes, the bikini is staying.

Miss Ettinger, known as “Obama Girl,” is now appearing in Bikini Zone commercials, a CCA Industries, Inc. product designed to eliminate razor burn in the lower bikini area after shaving. The commercial is airing on such cable channels as E! Network.

It was unclear what direction the budding actress’s career might take after the election, and she was heralded as one of Mr. Obama’s most popular supporters in media interviews. Miss Ettinger has continued to make Obama-themed videos for the Web site Barely Political, but the folks at CCA Industries say that has nothing to do with the Bikini Zone commercials.

“We didn’t choose her because she’s “Obama Girl,” CCA Industries CEO David Edell said. “She has wonderful Internet following among young girls and we market our product to young girls.”
