Jennifer Hudson, as far as we know, has no issues with Kerry Washington. So, in good fun, this funny spoof is designed to show the benefits of Obamacare, primarily to the millions of African Americans who are going to be able to use it. Washington is the star of the hit TV show, “Scandal,” which keeps her pretty busy these days.
You gotta love it, and you also wonder how Jennifer Hudson is able to stay so relevant. She hasn’t really had any hit songs and she doesn’t have a TV show, does she? Maybe it’s those Weight Watchers commercials that keep her on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Either way, it’s good stuff.
The references to Kerry Washington’s character, Olivia Pope, are impossible to miss and the overall tone of the promotional video are so hilarious that you almost forget you’re listening to real solutions to real problems Americans face every day.
Hudson slipped into the famous white coat that Olivia Pope rocks consistently and revealed that her name in the comedic but informational parody is Lydia Cole – it doesn’t get much closer to Olivia Pope than that.
In the spoof, Hudson takes on the role of the Scandal “fixer,” although she makes it very clear that she would prefer to be called a “covert scandal manager.”
