Rock-star puppets

Ad Council's band The Breathe Easies sing about asthma prevention.

Animated spots seem to be en vogue, but this PSA by the Ad Council proves when you’re trying to be a little wacky, you can’t go wrong with puppets. These silly spots have a serious message about preventing asthma attacks, since seven million kids in the U.S. have asthma, according to the council. So, the English and Spanish PSAs, by Boston-based agency The Barbarian Group, introduce The Breathe Easies, an “asthma-centric rock band.” The auto-tuned songs, such as “Don’t smoke in the house” and “Clean up the Mold,” are, like that Miley Cyrus song, ┬áhard to get out of our heads.
