CBS HAS PERFECT PRESCRIPTION TO CREATE WATER COOLER BUZZ FOR NEW FALL SEASON

#1 Television Network to Promote New Comedy "Out Of Practice" with Ads on AquaCell Water Coolers in Drug Stores

Campaign Also Includes Promotion for CBS Monday Comedy Block on Prescription Bags

New York -- CBS is on a mission to create water cooler buzz for new comedy OUT OF PRACTICE. With the tagline "Quench Your Thirst for Comedy," the CBS Marketing Group today announced an innovative way to reach viewers by advertising on AquaCell Media's water cooler systems and cup holders.

The cast of OUT OF PRACTICE will be featured on water coolers in hundreds of Rite Aid and Duane Reade stores. The drug store placement is ideal since the comedy is about a family of five doctors.

CBS's drug store marketing also includes advertising for its Monday comedy line-up on prescription bags. The tagline "Prescription-Strength Comedy" is used to plug television's top comedy block which includes returning hits THE KING OF QUEENS and TWO AND A HALF MEN and new shows HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER and OUT OF PRACTICE.

"At the heart of any promotional campaign is the drive to inspire water cooler buzz," said George Schweitzer, President of the CBS Marketing Group. "What better way to accomplish this than by putting advertisements for one of our highly anticipated new comedies -- OUT OF PRACTICE -- on AquaCell's water coolers," he added.

"We are excited that CBS has chosen our coolers as one of the ways to promote its new television show given the countless other advertising mediums available," said Michael Dougherty, President of AquaCell Media, Inc. "Our cost-effective 'Message On The Bottle' advertising program continues to garner attention from target consumers and interested advertisers as well."

AquaCell Media's "Message On The Bottle" advertising program provides unique "out-of-home" advertising. The Company installs its patented self-filling AquaCell Bottled Water Cooler System into various locations free of charge under a multi-year agreement and retains ownership of the "billboard" water cooler. Revenue is generated through the sale of the advertising space on the bottle band and cup holder of the permanently attached five-gallon bottle to companies that provide products and services pertinent to the demographics and location.
