US democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's popularity is compared to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton in a new republican campaign advert.

Te advert, which will air next week, fuses images of Spears and Hilton with the triumphant scenes from Mr Obama's recent visit to Europe.

At the same time a narrator asks whether the “biggest celebrity in the world” is actually “ready to lead” America.

“With gas prices soaring, Barack Obama says no to offshore drilling and says he'll raise taxes on electricity. Higher taxes, more foreign oil — that's the real Obama,” the advert says.

The advert is signifies the intensifying battle between Mr Obama and republican John McCain, both of whom are vying for victory in the November elections.

Republicans believe the “entertaining” advert will show Americans how Mr Obama has created a celebrity smokescreen to hide his policy ideas.

But it has been dismissed as negative campaigning by Mr Obama's campaign team.

“On a day when major news organizations across the country are taking Senator McCain to task for a steady stream of false, negative attacks, his campaign has launched yet another," his spokesman, Tommy Vietor.

"Or, as some might say, 'Oops! He did it again.' "

As previously reported on Gigwise, Mr Obama has angrily rejected the lyrics in a song by US rapper Ludacris, which appear to criticise his opponents.
