Adam Scott Reprises 'Step Brothers' Character for Funny or Die Obamacare Clip (Video)

 Funny or Die

The Obama administration isn't done using Funny or Die to encourage young people to sign up for health insurance by the March 31 deadline.

After the president's successful Between Two Ferns appearance with Zach Galifianakis, a new Funny or Die video surfaced on Tuesday, featuring Adam Scott reprising his Step Brothers character Derek Huff.

In the clip, Derek interrupts his Google Glass hangout with Mark Cuban, Jeff Probst and Chris Daughtry to go on a rant against health insurance in front of an American flag.

"Health insurance equals fear, and I'm not afraid of anything bro," Derek says.

He then issues a series of outlandish statements designed to illustrate how invincible he is, just like the Obama administration claims so many young people who refuse to sign up for health insurance feel.

"I've had 14 concussions and I like 'em," he says. "I don't even vaccinate my kids. Hey, they get polio, that's their problem. My primary care physician is Anthony Bourdain."

Derek goes on to claim he was struck by lightning seven times (he finds it "erotic"), he once drank an entire bottle of antifreeze with no effect and he stayed in his house while it was being fumigated.

On cue, right after he's done taping the ad, Derek falls off the wooden crate he's standing on, hurting his ankle. As he cries out for someone to call an ambulance, one of the crewmembers says, "We could, but without heath insurance, that's going to cost a couple thousand dollars."

"What? That's so expensive," Derek says.

A title card directing people to healthcare.gov flashes at the end of the video.
