Since launch, there have been more than 700,000 views of the PSA. This piece elevates the visibility of the campaign to new audiences. The placements reached the general public, policymakers, consumers, and celebrity audiences with a simple health message.

There were more than 150 story placements about the PSA, most with embedded links to the spot. We captured the front page of The Huffington Post and were a top post on Politico and CNN Marquee. Other notable placements include, but were not limited to,The Washington Post, The Hill, ABC News Political Blog, Perez Hilton, ESPN, and theL.A. Times.

The familiar comedic schtick aside, the message comes through clearly: Walking does a body a lot of good and can head off a great many adverse conditions.
