Vince Carter Scores a Slam Dunk With Milk

CHICAGO, IL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 29, 2006 -- Vince Carter, a seven-time NBA All-Star, is one of the best finishers in the NBA. His vertical leap and astounding moves on the court make him one of the most-talented professional basketball players. Carter is the latest celeb to join the Body By Milk campaign, created to encourage teens to drink milk to help maintain a strong, fit and healthy body. Other athletes sporting the iconic 'stache in the campaign include David Beckham, Sasha Cohen and Alex Rodriguez.

Teens can log on to check out behind-the-scenes footage from Vince's ad shoot and can enter the "Think About Your Drink" photo contest that might just put them in a Body By Milk starring role. The ad copy reads, "Vinsanity by Carter. Body by milk. Slam it. The protein in milk helps build muscle and drinking it regularly along with exercise will help keep your body toned. Staying active, eating right and drinking 3 glasses a day of lowfat or fat free milk helps you look great and stay in shape. So grab a glass and go crazy." The ad hits newsstands on January 3rd in Sports Illustrated.
