Real ads and Andrew Walsh ideas on how to get kids to sign up for Obamacare

Proponents of Obamacare are trying hard, sometimes too hard, to reach out to young people.

That got KIRO Radio's Andrew Walsh thinking about how he would try and target the young folks to sign up for health insurance. He turned to 'Breaking Bad' while listeners had some of their own topical suggestions.

Andrew's idea: The "Breaking Bad" fan approach.

"['Breaking Bad's' Skinny Pete and Badger's] lives aren't together at all, they're young meth dealers who aren't the smartest. They're the comic relief of the show basically. I could see those two pairing up, and they decide they need to enter into the health care exchange. The ad could read, 'If Badger and Skinny Pete can do it - you can too.'"
