“Get Covered” brings on images condoms and nasty STDs. People never think through these slogans.
At first glance I thought it said “tell a friend- get tested”
That was the oddest video. Besides the prancing and mincing homos, the woman kept chanting get covered or some such. It was just weird and it cost $1.37 million, obviously went to friends of Odinga.
Still not as good as the Chevy Volt Dancers.
youtube that bizzare fustercluck some time.(paid for by us)

Often out of sync. Reportedly, the cringe-inducing interpretation of an electric-powered future took place every hour during the ten days of the show.
