No, really. Young Erin McDonald won $2,000 for her Obamacare-promoting YouTube video based on Jessie J’s hit, “Price Tag.” The vocals and rewrite of the lyrics aren’t bad, but I give you the chorus. Sung seemingly without irony:
Ain’t about the, uh, cha-ching cha-ching
Ain’t about the, yeah, bling bla-bling
Affordable Care Act — Don’t worry about the price tag.
Emily Zanotti, who has the rest of the winners, in two other categories. Neither are as delightfully clueless as this offering, but there are white people rapping:
I suspect she doesn’t pay taxes, or she might have a problem with the billion-dollar price tag on the website alone. But whatever.
