As part of the effort to encourage people to sign up for health insurance, a new national campaign — Tell A Friend, Get Covered — aims to reach 100 million people.
And right out of the block, the campaign has a viral hit. Watch as Obama impersonator Iman Crosson raps as “B-Rock O’Beezy” to Snoop Dogg’s Drop It Like It’s Hot. Yes, really.
Crosson, who performs as AlphaCat, gets right into it:
“When I’m the Oval Office, call me President Barack, President Barack, President Barack.
“When my critics get an attitude, I tell ‘em to stop. I tell ‘em to stop. I tell ‘em to stop.
“And If you need that new health care, sign up cuz it’s hot. Sign up cuz it’s hot. Sign up cuz it’s hot.
“Don’t stand and diddle, my health care’s the shizzle, It’s chock full of top-notch health care provizzles. We’ll cover all your vizzles, your dizzles and your tizzles. Now, while you figure that out, it’s back to the chorizzle.”
I think it will make more sense if you watch the video.
For those who want coverage that will start on Jan. 1, the deadline to sign up is Monday, Dec. 23. Open enrollment runs until Mar. 31, 2014.
