Panelists on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” could barely keep it together Thursday morning while discussing the White House’s new “pajama boy” Obamacare ad, repeatedly bursting into laughter over the “hipster-ish model wearing flannel pajamas.”

“You are kidding, right?” Joe Scarborough chuckled after seeing the ad. “Wow. That’s gonna get ’em on Main Street.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski squeaked out a laugh while reading a Rich Lowry op-ed describing the bespectacled model as an “insufferable man-child.” But it wasn’t until she got to the part describing the onesie-clad lefty as a “troll” that the panel really lost it.

“My God! It looks like he’s out of a bad ‘Vampire Weekend’ CD,” Scarborough cracked as the rest of the room guffawed. Brzezinski briefly calmed down enough to explain that the White House is “trying to get young people who are 25-years-old,” prompting Scarborough to respond “That ain’t how you do it!” Scarborough later mocked the ad for its uncanny accuracy. “That’s what we think liberals look like sitting around at holiday parties,” he joked.

The New York Times’ Jeremy Peters eventually eased up on ‘pajama boy,’ instead targeting the Organizing for Action officials who dreamed up this little gem. “If this is the strategy, the kind of strategy behind promoting and marketing this law, this is not a good time for Democrats,” he said, prompting even more laughter from his fellow panelists.
