Lyrics:

He was working on his laptop late one night
when his eyes beheld a ghoulish site
He could not log in despite several tries
then suddenly to no one's surprise

(he did the Mash)
He did the Healthcare Mash
(the Healthcare Mash)
it was a keyboard smash
(he did the Mash)
the website was trash
(he did the Mash)
He did the Healthcare mash

Who could design such a site so flawed and so sloppy?
The code is so ancient, perhaps it was Hammurabi
He'd try to apply but the site would suspend
I've seen a eunuch with a more functional front end

(he did the Mash)
He did the Healthcare Mash
(the Healthcare Mash)
it was a keyboard smash
(he did the Mash)
He tried to clear his cache
(he did the Mash)
He did the Healthcare mash

Hundreds of millions of dollars were spent
for a website that has trouble loading
How could the government's web designers
create a site with such awful coding?

(they did the Mash)
Ahh, they did the Healthcare Mash
(the Healthcare Mash)
it was a keyboard smash
(they did the Mash)
they spent all of our cash
(they did the Mash)
They did the Healthcare Mash

  • Ghetto Slovak Goatherder||

    I see we had similar tech support experiences!

  • Rich||

    How much taxpayer money was spent on that video?

    Another goodie by Remy. Nice visuals.

  • MasterDarque||

    Another classic

  • Fist of Etiquette||

    While I appreciate the effort, and this was a superior one, now I have that song in my head.

  • Rich||

    Wah ooh!

  • RightNut||

    This is about as good a place to drop this as any....careful remy you don't want to end up on Probings.

    Two lines had me lol'ing:

    The code is so ancient, perhaps it was Hammurabi
    I've seen a eunuch with a more functional front end

    Classic. Thanks Remy.

  • Sudden||

    Same two lines cracked me up too. Remy's wit is phenomenal and his song construction is solid. So underappreciated.

  • InlineSkate||

    Honestly, they should of just directed people towards eHealth.com. You know the site that has been doing the same that the government wasted millions on trying to recreate with Healthcare.gov.

  • InlineSkate||

    Should have*

  • Some Chick from OH||

    Congrats, Remy - a snippet from this was featured on Hermain Cain's radio show this morning. I suspect Herman's producer "ShaneyB" found it.

  • XM||

    Happy Halloween, everybody!

  • Brutus||

    Zing!

  • BigSoph||

    I don't see the issue - I was able to sign up no problem

    Well, maybe a small one - I am a Canadian and it happily let me sign up (I did lie about living in Michigan)

    Purging officers in the military, requiring all citizens to sign up for something... why does this remind me of something... for some CRAZY reason the Russian word for committee comes to mind

    What was that word... soviet?

  • Brian||

    I hate the monster mash so much, I don't want to watch this video.

    Should I give it a chance?
