Obamacare pitch: ‘Funny or Die’ certainly lives up to the ‘funny’ part

Here’s a claim in a new “Funny or Die” pitch for Obamacare: “You can sign up online in ten minutes!”

“Funny or Die” has lived up to the “funny” part, and you might die laughing, but for a different reason:

The site’s second video hawking the unpopular, buggy legislation features a “man on the street” style interview with Olivia Wilde and site regular Billy Eichner. He tells her a series of statements, and she must say if they are applicable to Obamacare or not. If not, she is told to say, “shut up!”

The ensuing statements trot out Obamacare talking points which may or may not prove verifiable, but one particular item we already know is laughably false.

“You can sign up for health care online in 10 minutes,” the man tells Wilde.

“Obamacare!” she cries with excitement.

As a matter of fact, the online sign up is so fast and easy that the administration is now recommending that people call on the phone instead (preferably a rotary land line). They’re just way too tech savvy for us serfs to understand.

HealthCare.gov should run this video on a loop so people have something to laugh at as they grow old in the Obamacare online waiting room:
