A Virginia-based group of conservatives has just launched a new anti-Obamacare advertisement that aims to make its audience cringe.

Generation Opportunity, funded by Charles and David Koch, plans a $750,000 campaign of “Opt Out” ads aimed at convincing college students that they don’t need Obamacare, Mediaite.com reported.

In one ad, “The Exam: Creepy Uncle Sam,” a college-age woman goes for a gynecological exam only to find out the person performing the exam is someone in an oversized Uncle Sam suit holding a vaginal speculum.

He pops up from between the woman’s legs as the text warns: “Don’t let government play doctor.”

In another ad geared toward men, Uncle Sam slaps on a rubber glove after a man prepares for a prostate exam.

“What we’re trying to communicate is, ‘No, you’re actually not required to buy health insurance,’” President Evan Feinberg told Yahoo News. “You might have to pay a fine, but that’s going to be cheaper for you and better for you.”

“If young people do opt out en mass, it will put the law in a bind, for sure,” he added. “If it means they have to repeal it because it doesn’t work and that ends up crippling the law, well fine. Then they have to make some changes or repeal the law to make it work.”
