Amber Lee Ettinger is an American actress, model, singer but most importantly an internet personality. She may not have appeared in many shows but her ideas and acts have inspired countless spoofs and generated a huge amount of laughter.
Her claim to fame happened when she was hired by the YouTube channel Barely Political to star in one of their videos playing Obama Girl. Her video titled ‘Crush On Obama’ was so influential that she went on to be a part of a lot of important political conversations of that time.
The reason behind it simply being that the swooning she displayed over the President was symbolic of the excitement many at that moment were feeling for Obama. Her act gained so much popularity that it was spoofed and made into sketch comedies in shows like Saturday Night Live, Geraldo at Large, The O’Reilly Factor, and Hannity. As a model she has been featured in magazines like Elle, FHM and Maxim.
She mostly specialised in swimsuit and lingerie. She is also a great designer and along with her mother Roseann Ettinger has created a jewellery line called “Inspired by Amber”. She is also a beauty queen having won Miss NYC and Miss Alpine New Jersey in the 2003-2004 Miss Hawaiian Tropic pageant.
She has also appeared in multiple commercials. Some of those have been for VH1’s Pepsi Smash, Bikini Zone, and Certain Dri. Her music video credit includes working for artists like Thalía, The John Popper Project,” and Styles P.
