Boost Mobile and celebrity ‘coaches’ Ice-T and Luis Guzman kick off Boost Mobile’s “Spokesbattle” today, a humorous, interactive, reality TV-style campaign that puts two people against each other and lets consumers vote to determine who will be the next Boost Mobile Spokesperson.
Created by 180LA as a play on popular reality talent competitions, the campaign invites Boost Mobile’s fan base to participate in the process while creating awareness for Boost’s recent launch of both the Samsung Galaxy S 5 and Monthly Unlimited Select, a trio of unlimited talk, text and data pricing plans starting as low as $40 per month. The competition starts this week and people can cast their votes at www.boostmobile.com/vote until July 7th. Boost Mobile will announce the winner later that month.
Al estilo clásico de los reality shows de TV, Boost Mobile ha lanzado una nueva campaña donde el público podrá participar de la decisión de quien será el portavoz oficial de la compañía en sus futuras campañas.
Ice-T y Luis Guzmán son los contendientes de esta batalla por el puesto, y así como Boost Mobile cree que el público tiene una opción al elegir servicios telefónicos móviles, también les dará la opción para elegir quien será la estrella de sus siguientes campañas publicitarias.
Ambos actores, Ice-T y Luis Guzmán son reconocidos por sus múltiples participaciones en programas de televisión, especialmente policiacos y numerosas películas.
El ganador que será elegido mediante votos que se pueden realizar en www.boostmobile.com/vote será la personalidad que tendrá el honor de hablar de los nuevos lanzamientos de la empresa, tales como el Samsung Galaxy S 5 y los planes Unlimited Select que incluyen minutos textos y datos a un precio que empieza en $40 dólares y que ahora ofrece Boost a sus clientes.
La campaña es muy original y fresca, y fue dirigida por Jake Szymanski quien es reconocido por su colaboración en “Saturday Night Live” y “Funny or Die”.

Latinos living in the US need to be informed about political changes. They affect us in several ways, such as immigration, education and health among other aspects.
Following and understanding political campaigns can be difficult and Nuvotv is going to make it easier for us. We Decide: Latinos and the 2012 Election a TV show premiering on nuvoTV on Aug. 19 at 8PM (ET/PT) and presented by today show's Natalie Morales. She will serve as moderator for a panel of high-profile politic experts that will be answering questions from a live audience and also from people from social platforms such as twitter. The focus of the show is to inform the audience how the presidential candidates are addressing the issues that affect Latinos.
The show will provide information about how the Presidential candidates will be handling the issues that Latinos are concerned about every day. The statistics show that Latinos have a higher rate of unemployment, poverty and we struggle with education. How each candidate will handle the issues that concern us (Latinos) will dictate our future for the next 4 years.
It is not easy to make an educated choice, but as Latinos we need to think on how the president campaign will affect us. It is my opinion that regardless of how you like and choose, we need to think about the rest of the Latino population and the problems that we face every day.
Issues affecting Latinos and other statistics: (source: Pew Hispanic Research)
Latino Poverty Rate (Greater increase than any other ethnic group)
2006 – 20.6%
2010 – 26.6%
Children Living in Poverty
African American – 4.4 million
White – 5.0 million
Latino – 6.1 million
No High School Diploma Adults 20 or older
White – 14%
Asian – 15%
African American – 23%
Latino – 41%
From personal experience going through the process of immigration it is not easy and having advocates helping our community is fundamental. We also need help understanding the meaning of the new health care reform and how things are still not on set stone and might change affecting our population drastically.
Being informed and understanding the ideas of each candidate will make choosing the candidate to vote for. I think that having a TV show with experts can give us some clarification on all this issues.
Latinos have a huge impact on the votes as shown on the Pew Hispanic Research
2008 Presidential Election
Eligible Whites who votes – 66%
Eligible African Americans who voted – 65%
Eligible Latinos who voted – 50%
So let's make our voice be heard with an educated decision.
