Today, the Independent Institute is launching a fun, five-part, satirical, YouTube web series called Love Gov!
Here’s more information on what the series is about:
“Love Gov is a way to help anyone, especially Millennials, understand the federal government’s ever-expanding reach into personal lives,” says David J. Theroux, Founder and President of Independent Institute. “It’s a lighthearted approach to reach audiences on a personal level, and inspire them to learn more and take action.”
The series, which will premiere on YouTube and is being produced by Independent in association with Emergent Order, depicts the federal government as an overbearing boyfriend—Scott “Gov” Govinsky—who foists his “good intentions” on a hapless, idealistic college student, Alexis.
Each of the Love Gov series’ five episodes follows Alexis’s relationship with “Gov” as his intrusions and interventions wreak (hilarious) havoc on her life, professionally, financially, and socially. “Gov” inadvertently creates excessive student loan debt, expensive housing, underemployment, inadequate and expensive healthcare, and commits personal privacy violations. Alexis’s loyal friend Libby tries to help her see “Gov” for what he really is—a menace. But will Alexis come to her senses in time? Tune in to find out!
