John McEnroe partners with Dove Men+Care

Tennis legend John McEnroe has partnered with Dove Men+Care in a new campaign to help men overcome skin irritation at the 2013 ING New York City Marathon.

In his new role, John offers anti-irritation tips through a series of humorous videos, as well as, coaching a team of real men as they prepare to run in the race.

To put their products to the test Dove Men+Care is also offering five men the chance to join their marathon team through a nationwide contest, with two slots being awarded to runners not previously offered entry into the race.

Matthew McCarthy, Senior Director of Deodorants/Antiperspirants at Unilever comments, ‘We want to help men end every day underarm irritation. Dove Men+Care Deodorant is excited to partner with John McEnroe and the ING New York City Marathon to show men they can fight underarm discomfort by providing real care with our clinically proven non-irritant products.’

John is no stranger to the issue, and he states, ‘I’m John McEnroe and I know a thing or two about irritation and with me being the irritable type, the product we’re working with made sense.’

Furthermore the sports legend will coach a team of real men as they run the 2013 ING New York City Marathon. McEnroe will offer these men the guidance they need to become mentally and physically prepared for their run and will see them through to the finish line. Running – and life – may come with everyday irritations, but Dove Men+Care believes deodorant should not be one of them.

McEnroe, whose history of irritation is well-documented, is going to provide his advice to the everyday man in a hilarious video series. The videos will highlight what the everyday running man endures and how irritation can impact their life. John attempts to offer solutions that everyone can be able to relate to, while being able to keep the audience entertained.
