Double entendre campaign ad draws attention


A new ad from President Obama's reelection campaign website is getting a lot of attention.

It's titled "Lena Dunham: Your First Time."  The actress speaks to the camera likening voting for Obama to losing her virginity.

Critics call it a tasteless attempt to target young female voters with the sexual double entendre, but an advertising expert calls it a brilliant move on the part of the Obama campaign

The actress has tweeted in her own defense saying, "The video may be light but the message is serious: vote for women's rights."
