New Obamacare poster boy is a gay Marine with the flu


Douchey hipsters? Check.

Promiscuous girls? Check.

Drunken frat boys? Check.

Potheads? Check.

Is there a stereotypical young demographic Obamacare advertising campaigns haven't covered yet?

According to Conor Gaughan, one of the biggest barriers to getting gays signed up for Obamacare is its lack of sex appeal:

[...]December 23 is the final day to enroll in the health marketplace for coverage on January 1, 2014. The ACA's impact on LGBT Americans is worth attention. For the first time, we can all access affordable health insurance options without discrimination.

But, let's be honest, enrollment isn't going viral. The process is cumbersome. Qualifying for assistance, comparing plans and completing the application -- it can be more time-consuming than holiday shopping. And, it's a lot less sexy.

Well, stereotypes be darned.  Here comes shirtless beefcake Rudolph to rally the gays:

This is the latest ad from Out2Enroll:

Meet our favorite reindeer, Chris Adames. Chris is a Marine Corps veteran who knows the importance of quality health care. Throughout his deployments, Chris sustained combat injuries, which are treated at the VA. He’s thrilled to volunteer with Out2Enroll to help get the word out about the importance of enrolling in health insurance.

And to really get you in the spirit of an Obamacare Christmas, there's this.

Again, not disgustingly stereotypical at all:

LYRICS (via YouTube):

Hope you're stuffed from your Thanksgiving

Now 'tis the season of giving

'Fore the Doctor brings a lump of coal

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

And, when it's time for resolutions

A health insurance solution,

Don't get left in the cold,

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!

When you finally meet Mr. Right

Never again will you be alone

You'll be glad you went to the site

Together you're a happy home

Pre-existing conditions won't stop 'em

New plans are better; can't top 'em

Whether Bronze, Silver, or Gold

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!


When you're finally ready to go

The marketplace will guide the way

Online or by phone

Assistance to help you pay

The year is quickly ending

Your chance for January coverage suspending

No matter who's under the mistletoe

Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled, Get Enrolled!
