CBS CREATES FIRST OF ITS KIND AD YOU CAN TASTE FOR THE FALL PREVIEW ISSUE OF ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

INNOVATIVE "WORD OF MOUTH" PRINT ADVERTISEMENT GIVES AUDIENCES FIRST TASTE OF NEW CBS DRAMA "CANE"

CBS today announced that it has created a first of its kind print advertisement for a television series that tastes like a non-alcoholic lime Mojito. The inventive ad, which promotes the fictional Duque Rum brand featured in the highly touted new series "Cane," starring Jimmy Smits, Hector Elizondo, Nestor Carbonell and Rita Moreno, will appear in the fall entertainment preview edition of Rolling Stone, hitting newsstands Sept. 7. Setting a new standard for innovative marketing and brand differentiation, the multi-sensory campaign will directly reach Rolling Stone readers and offer them a unique opportunity to experience "Cane."

The concept for the print ad was developed by the CBS Marketing Group and Initiative, the media, marketing and digital advertising agency for the Network that created a slick promotion showcasing the Duque Rum brand alongside a tamper-proof taste packet developed by First Flavor. The insert includes a thin, tamper evident pouch with a non alcoholic lime mojito-flavored dissolving taste strip which will enable them to enjoy the full-flavor taste experience of a rum mojito, without any of the sugar, calories or alcohol.

The two page advertisement promotes the season premiere of Cane while driving consumers to a website http://www.luciaduquerum.com/, created exclusively to promote the series. The site will also offer visitors a unique opportunity to enter a search for "The Duque Rum Girl," who will be cast in an upcoming episode of "Cane."

"What better way to launch a new series like this then design a one-of-a-kind print ad you can taste!" said George Schweitzer, President, CBS Marketing Group. "We are always looking to stretch the boundaries of traditional advertising by finding creative ways to market our primetime series. We're confident that this latest concept will not only appeal to Rolling Stone readers, but engage them to get a true taste of Cane," he added.

"Rolling Stone has always provided a creative environment for marketers to conduct innovative, never-been-done-before advertising initiatives that break new ground and generate buzz. We are thrilled to be partnering with CBS on this and expect the results to be exceptional," said Ray Chelstowski, Publisher of Rolling Stone magazine.

"We are extremely pleased with the early success of our Peel 'n Taste� flavor strip technology and its ability to enable consumers to taste the flavor of a wide range of products - in this case - a rum mojito," said Jay Minkoff, President and CEO of First Flavor. "CBS is at the forefront of multi-sensory marketing and, with this first-ever media campaign, is pioneering new ways for companies to interact with their customers. Here, the network has given Rolling Stone readers a reason to pause and make a sensory connection to 'Cane.' This is just the first in a series of innovative, taste-driven campaigns we will be launching this fall, and we are very excited about the response our Peel 'n Taste� flavor strips are already receiving from national marketers."

CANE stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jimmy Smits ("The West Wing") in an epic drama about the external rivalries and internal power struggles of a large Cuban-American family running an immensely successful rum and sugar business in South Florida.
