Celebrities are speaking out about insurance companies in the US, “There’s A Storm Coming” style. Celebs also came together a while back during the Prop 8 backlash, with Prop 8: The Musical (with Emmy Host Neil Patrick Harris, Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and more). This time, stars like Will Ferrell, John Hamm, and Olivia Wilde are featured in this video aimed at bringing more attention to insurance company profits vs. health care reform.
Here are some of the quotes from the video spoof:
“We need to remember who the real victims are,” says Donald Faison (Scrubs), to which John Hamm replies, “The health insurance executive.”
“These great businessmen are American heroes,” states Linda Cardellini. “Insurance companies need our support because they keep our selfish priorities in check when we can’t.”
“So why is Obama trying to reform health care when insurance companies are doing just fine making billions of dollars in profit?” asks Will Ferrell.
