You may know Andy Cobb from the series of humorous video sketches he’s done about Republicans, the media, and assorted inanities. But he works by day as an actor. And a few years ago, he was a commercial spokesman for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. Now, he’s speaking out about the insurance industry in a new video produced by Brave New Films for their Sick For Profit campaign (disclosure: I am a blogger fellow on this campaign).
Andy, who lives in Los Angeles, describes himself as a “spokesjerk” put in front of the cameras by the industry to deliberately stand in the way of reform and maintain the status quo. He asks for solidarity from spokesjerks like him – the Sham-wow guy, for example – to stop pitching products that rip off Americans.
