Video: Takeoff on DirectTV ads urging you to vote

Who hasn’t seen the hilarious ads for DirectTV that begin with the line “When the cable company keeps you on hold.” What follows is a series of improbable causes and effects.

Each series ends with an admonition based on the last effect. In this ad, for example, the last line before the pitch for the services is “Don’t have your dad get punched over a can of soup.”

An ad urging you to vote Republican has a similar format. It is good laugh, but the bottom line is dead serious. Namely, if Americans don’t vote against the current power structure in Congress, we will continue to see health insurance cancellations from Obamacare and our healthcare costs will continue to grow even as access to service becomes more limited.
