Video of Benito Skinner with a caption “The White House hired another influencer to promote vaccines,” has gone viral on Twitter.
Video shows a comedian turned influencer dressed as a “Gen-Z intern” promoting the vaccine at the White House.
Benito Skinner aka Benny Drama, a comedian and impersonator, plays the “iconic” role of an effeminate “Gen-Z” intern named Kooper who lands a gig at the White House, with vaccines prominently featured.
“Kooper the Gen Z (@whitehouse) intern wants SHOTS IN ARMS. Head to vaccines.gov for more information! Let’s keep ourselves, families, and communities safe <3 WE DID IT, JOE! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 And thank you to Jen Psaki for being the best girlboss in the world (This was filmed prior to new CDC mask guidelines, please find your states guidance at cdc.gov!)” Benny Drama aka Kooper wrote in an Instagram post.
“We need to get shots in the arms of every single American!” with his feet propped up on the desk, Kooper urges on an important call. “Now, I’m heading to a haircut.”
Jen Psaki, Biden’s press secretary, also appears with Kooper, urging Americans to get the COVID vaccine.
“We’ve come a long way in our fight against this virus,” she said to Kooper, who was pretending to take notes. “We have vaccinated 160 million Americans. Are you writing this all down? ”
“Don’t worry queen — it’s all right here,” Kooper said, pointing to his head.
