Listerine seeks to educate consumers on oral hygiene with docummercial
MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. A new Listerine docummercial narrated by award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris is hitting the airwaves.
“This Is Your Mouth,” gives viewers insight on oral hygiene and how antiseptics like Listerine can destroy millions of germs that are left behind from brushing one’s teeth. Every time the video is viewed on Listerine.com/YourMouth, a $1 donation will go to the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation: America’s Toothfairy.
“I never realized how much goes on ‘behind the scenes’ in our mouths, and that brushing and flossing alone isn’t enough to keep germs at bay,” said Neil Patrick Harris. “But more importantly, I’m excited that by viewing this documentary on the Web site, donations will be made to National Children’s Oral Health Foundation, a very worthwhile organization.”
