Amy Schumer's Pitch-Perfect Colorado Tourism Ad

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Though we all wish it wasn’t necessary:

Amy Schumer welcomes you to Colorado no matter why you’re coming.

The New York Daily News reports on comedian Amy Schumer’s new spoof sketch ad encouraging tourism to Colorado, travel that may or may not have anything to do with our state’s increasingly important status as a haven for abortion rights in a post-Roe America:

The self-deprecating stand-up comedy sensation, who is a vocal advocate about abortion rights in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s reversal, is holding nothing back…

“No one should have to justify a trip to Colorado, maybe you just want to do with your own body what you want to do with you own body,” Schumer teases in the sketch.

An actress in the sketch is seen in what appears to be an OB/GYN waiting room.

“My employer actually paid for my trip to Colorado, they covered travel and time off,” she speaks into the camera. “I mean, I did have to get HR involved in my personal life, which is obviously not ideal, and they didn’t cover childcare while I was out of down. But still I’m grateful for access to Colorado.”

But you’d better hurry, because Schumer warns that “access to Colorado” could be for a “limited time only”–which we’re pretty sure is a not-so-coded message to all you voters out there. After all, Colorado is only one election away from being one of those states people in need of abortion care travel from instead of travel to. Leading to Schumer’s broader assessment of the situation with which it’s hard to disagree:

It’s not an ad the Colorado Tourism Office can make, but it’s the best ad for the purpose…maybe ever.

  1. “Democrats, come to Colorado and kill your baby while enjoying the majesty of GOD’s creation, Visit a homeless camp and score some cheap drugs…….it’s all about access.”

    1. There are liquor stores everywhere in Red States.  Talk about scoring cheap drugs.  And making abortion illegal doesn't end abortion, it increases mortality for women.  But then you don't care about women, do you.  As for the myth of god.  You do you.
