The White House recruited talent show fame, a capella group Pentatonix, to urge Americans to get the booster shots. Earlier this year, pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo visited the President's official residence to meet with President Joe Biden and his chief Covid-19 medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, to record videos to encourage young people to get vaccinated against the novel coronavirus. Both efforts have been dismissed as "propaganda" by people on social media and the musicians have drawn flak for being a part of the same.

"We can’t shout ‘get your booster’ from the rooftops of the White House, so we asked @PTXofficial to do us one better. Find a booster or vaccine appointment near you at http://vaccines.gov." read a tweet shared on WH's official Twitter page, along with the video. The a cappella quintet was formed in 2011 and the same year they won the third season of NBC's reality show 'The Sing-Off' for which they were awarded prize money of $200,000 and a recording contract with Sony Music. Dressed to the teeth for the video, Pentatonix harmonized, "Get your booster, just like a seat for a little kid. Just like the heat from a rocket ship. Sometimes all you need is a booster."

White House's vax video feat Pentatonix has Internet demanding a dislike button

The WH introduced the booster shots into the ongoing conversation, after months of officials urging people to get vaccinated against Covid-19. Turns out, people are not exactly pleased with the efforts. "Where is the dislike button when you need it??? This is getting a little ridiculous folks," a Twitter user wrote. "Thank you for this. I was on the fence (jk) but am absolutely certain now that I won't be getting any vaccines as a result of this video. Please let @PTXofficial
know they were instrumental in my decision to not get vaxxed. Thanks guys!" tweeted another.

"Next time someone tells you they like atrocious, over-produced a capella groups like @PTXofficial remember they took money to make a propaganda video for vaccines dot gum," a third tweeted. "This video just strengthened my opposition to getting the vaccine," a fourth remarked. "Is it possible to get my vaccine removed from me because that’s what this video makes me want," a fifth tweeted. "My cringe meter just exploded," noted another.
