Senators Join Best Buy Networking Effort
Best Buy's @15 teen social network has introduced several new "Teen Service Announcements," from five people very much at the opposite end of the celebrity spectrum from their previous pitchman, rapper Ludacris: the new participants are five U.S. Senators.
The messages were recorded by Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, and Democrats Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Bill Nelson of Florida. The senators all share messages about growing up, including stories from their own teen years and how their saw their futures at the time.
