Video: The Daily Show rips Brosurance...and Hosurance

The Colorado Consumer Health Initiative's Adam Fox has kept us up to date on pro-Obamacare ads aimed at young, uninsured people -- a campaign doubters have alternately derided as "brosurance" and "hosurance" due images of dudes doing keg stands and a babe eager to take advantage of free birth control. The latest to weigh in? The Daily Show, a presumably more sympathetic forum. And yet, correspondent Aasif Mandvi's take down is at least as critical as the ones that preceded it -- but a lot funnier. See Fox, Mandvi and a whole lotta bros and hos below.
