Boy Band - Teen TV

The "Boy Band" spot spoofs the popular music documentary shows highlighting a "boy band", much like N'Sync or the Backstreet Boys. It starts with an interview of the band talking about their involvement with tutoring to young children. What ensues are the members of the band tutoring the only way they know how - through song and dance routines. Children look on in confusion as the band sings to them about math and science.

Finally, the message of the advertisement is revealed, teens are encouraged to become role models in their own communities through involvement in crime prevention activities like tutoring, mentoring, and volunteering. To get more information, contact 800-722-TEENS or check out the response book online. What do you want to be labeled as?
