Out2Enroll's holiday parody.

A new holiday-themed video that features guys in underwear encourages gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people to stay healthy and get enrolled in health care insurance.

The guys in briefs in the brief video have some in the community complaining about stereotypes and others humming along to the tune of "Let it Snow."

In a statement released over the weekend, the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay GOP group, denounced the video.

"This cynical ad betrays the depths Obamacare advocates will sink to in order to pad their pathetic enrollment numbers," Log Cabin Republicans executive director Gregory T. Angelo declared. "As a self-proclaimed 'fierce advocate' of gay equality, President Obama would do well to distance himself from this nonsense and denounce it immediately."

Angelo, in the news release, also said, "This ad is also an example of the left promoting harmful stereotypes that gay men are nothing more than sex-crazed lechers. If anyone on the right made such a comparison, liberals would be apoplectic. At a time when left-wing propagandists are decrying 'Duck Dynasty''s Phil Robertson for equating homosexuality with promiscuity and deviance, Out2Enroll and others should take a look in the mirror and ask if the truth is that they are the ones responsible for promoting such harmful stereotypes."

Out2Enroll is a coalition of groups that have been working with the Obama administration to encourage LGBT to buy health care insurance and also get educated about the benefits provided under the Affordable Care Act.

An announcement from Out2Enroll said the holiday parody was produced by Full Frontal Freedom and aims to bring awareness to the final week of health marketplace enrollment.
