Dave's Detours Challenges Celebrities to Duels of Comfort
Hanes(R) Men's Underwear heads straight to the front lines of viral
marketing to spread its ComfortSoft(R) message.
ST. LOUIS, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanes has enlisted citizen journalist Dave Picard -- an average guy -- to travel the nation to interview famous athletes and celebrities about how they stay comfortable. Dave faces off against these A-listers in offbeat "comfort challenges" which are available on Dave's website at http://www.davesdetours.com. The website features his videos, celebrity interviews, a daily blog and a running scoreboard of his standing versus the celebs. Consumers can chat with him one-on-one about his adventures, offer suggestions for future challenges or just talk some good-natured trash. Dave's escapades are further amplified by video hubs on CraveOnline.Com, ComedyCentral.Com and ESPN.Com. Dave's Detours captures rare "real" moments with celebrities as Dave competes in unique challenges such as arm wrestling, underwear tossing and thumb wrestling wars. Dave has already garnered an impressive following due in part to his unique challenges with celebrities such as Nelly, Reggie Bush, Chuck Liddell, Cuba Gooding Jr. and the Olly Girls. "Hanes knows guys, and Dave and his detours create a great channel to exemplify that," said Hilton Graham, Senior Brand Manager. "We believe that with Dave's sincere and outgoing personality, he can create a genuine relationship with consumers."
