CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ PARTNERS WITH ESPN® AND TONY GONZALEZ TO SHOW MEN HOW TO CLEAN UP THEIR ACT
First-Time ESPYS presenter, Pro-Football Tight End, and Hall of Fame Hopeful Teaches Guys How to Go from Grizzly to Groomed in a Special ESPYS Segment
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 17, 2013 – /PRNewswire/ – CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ has signed on as a sponsor for the ESPY awards, airing tonight, showing men how the pros look good both on and off the sports field. The brand enlisted football player Tony Gonzalez who has been in training to be the perfect man on the red carpet, as well as the stage, in his new role as a presenter for the 2013 ESPY Awards on behalf of CLEAR. To get in shape for the show, Tony has been using the “2 in 1” shampoo + conditioners and shampoos designed specifically for men to be sure he keeps his tux flake-free all night long (visible flakes with regular use).
Despite being a football veteran who has lived under a helmet, Tony has been recognized for his well-groomed style off of the field. The tight-end was tapped by the CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ brand to work with them on their ESPN partnership and drive product awareness. Tonight’s broadcast will premiere an exclusive vignette, featuring Tony’s journey from a grizzly mountain man to the perfect presenter, culminating in his appearance onstage at tonight’s award show.
“Choosing Tony to be the face and hair of CLEAR MEN during our ESPYS partnership was an easy one” said David Rubin, Unilever Vice President Marketing Hair, U.S. “Tony is one of the most prominent athletes in football right now, and he embodies the brand’s aspirational message. Most of all, it’s the importance of recognizing that Tony is the man that young guys want to look like. We want them to see that regular use of CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ will give guys everywhere hair that is free of visible flakes and bring them one step closer to greatness.”
In fact, giving men even more inside information on how to go from grizzly to groomed, consumers who “like” CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ on Facebook will see a sneak peek of the award show segment showing how Tony transforms as the brand has released behind-the-scenes photos and video clips exclusively for fans via the social channel.
CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ knows that being the perfect presenter starts with great looking hair that is free of visible flakes with regular use. With nearly 30 million men experiencing dandruff, one of the most common and annoying scalp issues for men1, it is time to start using a solution that really works. Even though Tony has spent the past sixteen years with his hair under a helmet, he knows that CLEAR MEN SCALP THERAPY™ breaks the one-size-fits-all mold of dandruff care that leaves hair looking & feeling great, and has an amazing fragrance men enjoy using every day.
Do you think you have what it takes to get ESPYS ready? There’s still a chance for men everywhere to get in on the action next year and attend the 2014 ESPY Awards. Head to facebook.com/clearmen and enter by July 18th for a chance to win2 two tickets to next year’s ESPYS in Los Angeles.
