Adrian Gonzalez Promotes Anti-Tobacco Message in New TV Campaign for Massachusetts Dental Society


Jul 26, 2011

Red Sox All-Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and NESN have partnered with the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) to produce a new television campaign that highlights the dangers of smokeless tobacco.

The six-week campaign features Gonzalez in a 30-second commercial conveying the message that "Smokeless Tobacco is Not Harmless Tobacco." It's part of an effort that supports the same theme that MDS introduced several years ago when it launched its "Tips on Spit" anti-smokeless tobacco program.

"The MDS is thrilled to be able to partner with NESN on such an important campaign," MDS President Dr. Charles Silvius said. "And we are especially grateful to Adrian Gonzalez for his participation and support in helping us to educate the public on the dangers of smokeless tobacco."

The commercial featuring Gonzalez, which began airing on NESN on Monday, is set with the Red Sox dugout as the backdrop. It will air during NESN's Red Sox games, Red Sox pregame and postgame shows through Labor Day weekend and during the Dennis & Callahan Morning Show.

Gonzalez's photo will also appear on a poster that MDS will produce this fall. The poster will be mailed to all high schools in the state, along with a letter encouraging the schools to display it in an area most visible to students.
