On YouTube, "Obama Boy" Celebrates Obama's Gay Marriage Stance

BY Nick Judd | Wednesday, June 13 2012

Now making the rounds is a new video from a New York man calling himself "Obama Boy," in the tradition of 2008 viral video sensation Amber Lee Ettinger, the "Obama Girl."

On the occasion of President Barack Obama's completed evolution towards support of gay marriage, "Obama Boy" Justin Brown decided to get on screen with a ballad celebrating POTUS' new stance, video writer Justin Duarte told Politico.
