You may know Generation Opportunity from their “creepy Uncle Sam” ads. They recently brought their message to Notre Dame.

Generation Opportunity Takes ‘Opt-Out’ of Obamacare Message to College Students

It was only 10:30 a.m., and already, we were too cold to move, let alone get out of our SUV to tailgate. We’d been parked outside Notre Dame’s football stadium in South Bend, Indiana, in the alumni lot for more than two and half hours, ahead of the university’s last home game of the year against Brigham Young. Normally, cars line up in the wee hours of the morning to claim the best tailgate spots, but today, the stadium parking lot was a ghost town, with only one other vehicle in sight.

“Don’t worry. The students will come. They usually don’t show up until around 11:30,” one of the event’s hosts told me.

“They’re probably still asleep,” Mark Gianfalla, the student who organized the event, said.

Outside our cozy vehicle, it was a chilly 28 degrees. Every so often, 36 mile an hour gusts of wind brought spurts of snow and blew over tents and tables. The DJ quickly abandoned his plan to spin beats outdoors, opting to play a boom box out the back hatch of his truck instead. It wasn’t looking good for Generation Opportunity’s anti-Obamacare tailgate party.

But, just as predicted, at 11:15 students started coming to the Generation Opportunity tents. They happily listened to the organization’s staff talk about its “Opt-Out of Obamacare” campaign and signed pledges to do just that on the group’s iPads before leaving with green and yellow Mardi Gras beads (“We try to cater to the area we’re going to,” Patrice Lee, outreach manager for the group, told me) and Opt-Out koozies, sunglasses and bottle openers. Along with the students came cases of Bud Light, bottles of Andre, jugs of Fireball Whiskey and handles of vodka, gin and rum. Generation Opportunity’s beer pong table was swiftly put to use.

At 11:30 the pizza arrived, drawing a group of 40 or so students to the tents, which encouraged Generation Opportunity to deploy one lucky staffer as its “Creepy Uncle Sam” mascot. After posing for pictures with the students already at the tailgate, Uncle Sam made his way up and down the aisles of cars, partying with any student who would have him.
