Smokers: Resolve to Get the Monkey off Your Back in 2010
Date:12/23/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Quitting smoking is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions for many Minnesotans. As the holiday approaches, QUITPLAN Services, the free quit-smoking program provided through ClearWay Minnesota(SM), hopes to motivate them to make a fresh start with a new television ad launching just as most smokers resolve to quit. The new ad acknowledges that every individual experiences different triggers for smoking, and highlights the free, personalized help available through QUITPLAN Services. The ad debuts on Dec. 28.

"The New Year's holiday is when many smokers resolve to quit tobacco once and for all," said David Willoughby, Chief Executive Officer of ClearWay Minnesota. "Our new ad will help people realize that freedom from nicotine addiction is within their reach."

Everyone's Monkey is Different

The television ad puts a fresh twist on the idea of cigarette addiction as a monkey on one's back. The spot, "Everyone's Monkey is Different," features different smokers struggling with their unique monkeys, which tempt them to smoke upon waking, at the office, while commuting to work or outside a restaurant. Real monkeys and apes of various species were used in the making of the ad, which was created by Minneapolis agency Clarity Coverdale Fury. The campaign will also extend to online ads, with video and flash banners reinforcing the idea that help is available through QUITPLAN Services' free personalized plan.

The new ad is the most recent of several QUITPLAN Services ads to feature monkeys on people's backs. Over the years, television, radio and bus side advertising for QUITPLAN Services has featured everything from penguins and loons to cats and even robots on backs, all to show that it's possible for smokers to kick the habit for good.

"We make every effort to create attention-getting campaigns that acknowledge the difficulties most smokers face,
