MINNEAPOLIS – October 9, 2008 – Ruyan America, Inc., announced today that an infomercial featuring the company’s V-8 electronic cigarette will premiere next Monday, October 13, 2008, in 13 selected markets, which are Pittsburgh, Pa., Portland, Ore., Baltimore, Md., Cleveland, Ohio, Miami, Fla., San Diego, Calif., Hartford-New Haven, Conn., Indianapolis, Ind., Orlando, Fla., Sacramento, Calif., Denver, Colo. and St. Louis, Mo. It is expected that a nationwide roll-out of the program will begin shortly after this initial run, which is slated to conclude on Sunday, October 19, 2008.
The infomercial is a standard long form 28 and one-half minute program that introduces viewers to the Ruyan V-8 E-cigarette smoking substitute, a product that allows smokers to satisfy their desire for tobacco without producing second hand smoke and the 4,000 or so chemicals found in that smoke.
The infomercial features many individuals, smokers and non-smokers alike, who speak to the quality and usefulness of the product; both from the standpoint of it not producing an intrusive smoke or odor to offend non-smokers and of satisfying the urge for traditional cigarettes for smokers.
William Bartkowski, President of Ruyan America, Inc., stated, “The production of this show involved putting our unique product in the hands of many people in many walks of life. We were extremely pleased and to a certain extent humbled by the overwhelmingly positive response from smokers and non-smokers. We would encourage everyone who has the opportunity to take the time to view this program and become educated about this product and product category.”
The infomercial can be viewed in its entirety on the internet at www.nathanandjamesgroup.com. Viewers will be able to order and buy the product at that site under the same terms and conditions as offered in the infomercial. Nathan and James Group is based in Nashville, TN, and is the exclusive DRTV distributor of Ruyan products.
