I’m sure that this reveals my age, but I can’t quite relate to a conga line of young women doing shots off a ski.
The clever ad people—evidently, they’re from Colorado—think it’s amusing. They were inspired to play off the pun—it’s also a homonym-- between tequila shots and flu shots.
If that’s the extent of their creative originality, they should start looking for a different line of work.
The message, such as it is: Obamacare offers free flu shots.
I’m not sure what it’s costing their parents to keep them on their policies, but in my neighborhood flu shots cost about $25.00. Slightly more than the birth control—that costs $8.00 a month.
Here’s a trivia question?
Why did Obamacare wreck the insurance business?
Answer: To give everyone can have a free flu shot.
If you can't afford a flu shot your problems are not going to fixed by Obamacare. If you think that you have to choose between a few extra tequila shots and a flu shot, you problems are not going to be solved by Obamacare either.
But, do physicians recommend flu shots for women who are in the ski shots age group? Anyone can get a flu shot and perhaps it’s a good idea for everyone to do so, but normally they are recommended only for the geriatric set, the people who are most vulnerable to infection.
The girls doing the ski shots are ecstatic over having saved $25.00. If their first thought is: now I can have more tequila shots off of skis during winter break, then clearly they will have no problem finding a man to pay for all the shots they want. Duh?
But, why is this Obamacare ad team trying to turn these girls into alcoholics?
I suspect that in the next round of ads the team will tout the fact that it’s not just the flu shots that are covered. Rehab is too.
The ads will not tell them that AA is free.
