I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! ® Spray Launches ‘Spraychel for President’ Online Campaign;
Webisode Viewers Who Vote Could Win the President’s Salary!
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 23, 2008 – Many voters, weary of the long, drawn-out presidential race, will be happy to hear there’s a new candidate in town ready to get things cooking again – and give away the president’s salary to a lucky supporter! Spraychel, the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Spray, is running for president of the fridge in a new online animated series beginning today at www.VoteSpraychel.com. Spraychel is setting her sights on victory, but it’s the viewers taking action to get her elected who could win big – by entering a $400,000 presidential salary sweepstakes!
The campaign features the star power of Extra’s Mark McGrath, who lends his voice to play Mr. More, Spraychel’s big brother and campaign manager. The webisodes follow Spraychel as she campaigns on a platform of progress. “We’ve come a long way, and a vote for me means electing to enjoy zero calories and zero fat per serving, along with great butter taste,” said Spraychel. “I’m ready to cut through the fat and put aside greasy politics to give the constituents what they’re hungry for!”
Spraychel’s opponent, Maxwell Butterman, stands for the old-fashioned ways of eating. Backing Butterman are Spraychel’s arch-nemesis, Buttricia, and their spineless aide, Ross Perogi. Spraychel is intent on spraying her message far and wide on the trail with Mr. More.
“Spraychel’s presidential bid gets my whole-hearted support,” said McGrath, co-host of the syndicated TV show Extra. “Her passion for progress just can’t stay bottled up, and I’m excited to help her bring something great to the table.”
