Characters Wanted for a Stop Smoking Reality TV Show Produced by Hop-on and USAcig

TEMECULA, CA--(Marketwire - July 9, 2010) - Hop-on (PINKSHEETS: HPNN) and USAcig, Inc., makers of the groundbreaking electronic/electric cigarettes, are asking U.S. smokers to join them for interviews and auditions for a new TV Reality show called "No More Buts" that will air on National Television.

Casting producers are looking for addicted smokers, desirous of quitting, who are outgoing and charismatic with a competitive edge to their personality. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and legal residents of the United States to participate.

Peter Michaels, President of USAcig, stated, "We are looking for the biggest characters for our Stop Smoking TV show 'No More Buts.' People who are brutally honest about their habit of smoking, people who have tried everything to quit, people who can showcase funny talents with their cigarettes and even people who are struggling with other addictions such as drinking and need that cigarette after cigarette. We want to help reduce the number of smoking Americans. Quitting smoking is not easy; but it can be done and should have fun doing it."

The exact dates and locations for the casting calls will be posted on the "Join the 200K" website at: and video submissions will also be considered if entered through the site. Please note that the casting teams will do their best to see the first 500 people in line, and will try to see everyone. Candidates must bring a non-returnable photo of them and may submit a video online to secure an audition.

Further, both Hop-on and USAcig continue to encourage all smoking Americans to Join the 200K. The mission is to help 200,000 Americans quit smoking this summer, through the "Join The 200K" campaign. The campaign, which is running for four months (June 22 to October 22, 2010), will entice and educate men, women, young adults, and parents on the health and environmental advantages of quitting smoking. Join the 200K endorses both traditional smoking cessation products and using smoking alternative products, such as the electronic/electric cigarette. The goal is to change the reality that every 20 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a smoking related illness.

The Electric Cigarette™ is often referred to as a safer alternative to smoking. The device looks like a conventional cigarette, feels like a conventional cigarette and even tastes like a conventional cigarette; but, it does not have the harmful side effects of smoking a regular cigarette and does not produce any second hand smoke. The battery-operated device provides measured doses of nicotine through a vaporized solution. It is available in different flavors, including menthol, vanilla, chocolate, grape and strawberry. The Electric Cigarette™ is made in the USA.

It is important to note, "The Electric Cigarette™" is not a smoking cessation device.

As an alternative to smoking and a special offer, free product samples of the disposable electric cigarette are offered to campaign participants who sign up and join at
