The Obama campaign has put out an official video targeting young adults that compares voting to having sex for the first time. There really are not words to describe the ad, but it gels with the Obama campaign theme that this year’s election is all about sex, birth control and abortion.

In a creepy manner, Jim Messina, Campaign Manager for Obama for America, tweeted the video — making it public for the first time.

“Your first time voting is important. Trust @lenadunham—you are ready,” he said.

Dunham, is the creator and star of the HBO series Girls and something of a vulgar performance artist who tweets out gems like this one: “My biggest sexual fantasy is that someone busts in when I’m singing in the shower and yells “girl, where you been hiding that voice?”

Erick Erikson of Red State had perhaps the best response to the ad, “Obama puts out ad comparing voting for him to losing ur virginity. His problem is many treat 2008 as 1 night stand they’d prefer 2 forget.”
