Smokey Bear Turns 69 on Friday!

Smokey BearOne of the planet's favorite bears, Smokey Bear, is celebrating his 69th birthday on Friday!  

To celebrate, we'd like to help promote the Ad Council, the U.S. Forest Service, and the National Association of State Foresters with their new campaign.  There will be a series of new Smokey Bear PSAs, as a continuation of the longest running PSA campaign in U.S. history!

These new ads will include the famous Smokey Bear tagline, “Only YOU can prevent wildfires!"  They will also feature Smokey Bear rewarding Americans with hugs after acting safely with fire.  View the new Smokey Bear PSAs here.  My favorite one is below.

Do you want a hug from Smokey Bear?  Tweet with the hashtag #SmokeyBearHug.  

Stay tuned because I'll be blogging about another great Ad Council and Keep America Beautiful campaign next week!
