The clip shows troubled Washingtonians finding their problems have already been solved by Obamacare. A handful more ads will be released in the coming weeks. But despite two Hollywood-heavy campaign seasons, leading the GOP twice to dub Obama the celebrity president, research is against Team Obamas reliance on advertisements and PSAs featuring stars. Such marketing, with a few exceptions, does worse with viewers across the board, said Jonathan Symonds, executive vice president of marketing for the television analytics company Ace Metrix. Of the 2,000-odd political ads released during the 2012 campaign, the ones for which Team Obama enlisted the help of Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogues Anna Wintour, among other celebrities, were the worst performing, Symonds said. Still, to build a balanced market for Obamacare, the administration needs an estimated 2.7 million Americans between the ages of 18 to 35 to sign up, many of whom arent tuned in to traditional news and have little to no understanding of the laws specifics. Celebrities can drive awareness, and there are not a tremendous amount of creative angles out there for [Obama] and others to talk about implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Symonds said. This is an easy way to say, I can go to this person and have them explain it rather than have a less well-known person explain a complex issue. Thats where the attention-grabbing and shareable ads, aimed at people who use Twitter to follow celebrities rather than track the congressional debacle, can play a role.

A lot of people the White House and administration are trying to enroll dont exactly read Politico every morning, said Ronnie Cho, who served as associate director of public engagement for the White House until last month. Plus, the measure of success is different this time. The ads are not intended to be political, he said, and awareness more than politicking and persuasion is the objective. Funny or Die, a humor website with 19 million unique monthly visitors, lent a hand with a series of promos. If we can help make [signing up for Obamacare] a normal thing, something that isnt politicized, something that comes as second nature to younger people like putting your seat belt on, that is something wed want to do, Funny or Dies president, Mike Farah, told Mother Jones after the meeting.
