The Pajama Boy campaign just reminds folks that their grown children are still dwelling on their sofas for lack of work out there. Pajama Boy, "get off the couch with the hot chocolate," can't you just hear his mom yelling at him now? He’s the talk of the network morning shows in his onesy and drinking hot chocolate. The man-child Pajama Boy image conjured up to entice folks to start a conversation about Obamacare over the holidays is insipid.
The ad that’s deemed Pajama Boy by the media, simply says, “Wear pajamas, Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting health insurance. #GetTalking.”In an article from Dec. 20, NBC News suggests that "you are not supposed to like Pajama Boy." That's a good thing because this doesn't do it for most folks, the new Obamacare campaign apparently thinks this is the way to get people talking about healthcare.
The Pajama Boy looks a bit snide with that expression on his face. Why would anyone want to wear pajamas talking about healthcare, is this to represent the suggested comfort level you should strive for before talking about healthcare?
New Jersey Governor Christie suggests, “get out of your pajamas” and go volunteer." Now this is a campaign!
Why did the campaign pick out one man-child to represent this? Why not have a pajama party that would cover a bigger representation of the population. How about a Pajama Boy with a beer belly drinking a beer on mom's couch? This man-child dressed up as Pajama Boy is at the age that most experts think will dodge healthcare because of the cost for this age group.
From the looks of things today, the only thing Pajama Boy is doing for healthcare is reminding folks the astronomical amount of money wasted on launching Obamacare. Dressing up this man-child for a Christmas morning healthcare talk with family only adds to the concerns of good money going out after bad money spent!
