Featured Video: Health Insurance Song

By Sergio Published on .

“The Health Insurance Song,” a comedic photo montage set to a song parody, came about after songwriter-comedian Chris Jones (who performs under the name “Jonesy”) was hospitalized with a head injury in 2005. Faced with massive medical bills, Jonesy attempted to save money by removing his own stitches at home. The results were disastrous enough to inspire him to write “The Health Insurance Song,” a musical parody highlighting the plight of Americans without healthcare. Jonesy often incorporates music into his standup act, and he decided to create a video montage set to “The Health Insurance Song” to draw attention to his pet cause and his abilities as an entertainer.
