Singer Jennifer Hudson starred in a Funny or Die video released last week that spoofed the ABC show “Scandal” to promote the benefits of Obamacare.

Playing the part of a “covert scandal manager,” Hudson meets with clients who ask her to fix their healthcare “scandals” — from a father who needs his son to be covered by his healthcare plan after he graduates college to a politician whose pregnant mistress doesn’t have a health insurance policy. 

“Can you please find me a real scandal?” a frustrated Hudson asks. “All of these people’s scandals can easily be fixed by the ACA.” 

Hudson and Funny or Die’s president of production, Mike Farah, were part of a group of artists who met with President Barack Obama and White House staff in July to offer their help explaining the Affordable Care Act to young adults
