Volkswagen of America, Inc. teamed up with FOX Television and TEEN CHOICE 2008 to support the initiative to “green” Teen Choice. Young Hollywood showed their support for the environment by arriving at the eco-friendly TEEN CHOICE 2008 in Volkswagen’s fleet of highly-anticipated 2009 Jetta TDIs - the newly released, clean diesel sedan. Over fifteen members of the elite Young Hollywood chose to be the first to ride in the new TDI’s including Chase Crawford, Leighton Meester, Ed Westwick, Drake Bell, Katharine McPhee, Brittany Snow, JoJo, James Marsden, Jerry O’Connell, Rachel Bilson and Sophia Bush among others.
“We are pleased to partner with FOX and TEEN CHOICE to support their eco-friendly efforts by providing talent transportation in our new clean diesel vehicles,” said Mya Walters, Manager Lifestyle Public Relations, Volkswagen of America, Inc. “Who better to show the importance of environmental sustainability than teens – the future leaders in the movement to protect our environment and embrace alternative fuel solutions.”
TEEN CHOICE kicked off its green initiatives last year and continue using biodegradable fuels, recyclable set material and press credentials and signage printed on recycled paper. With the 2009 Jetta TDI, TEEN CHOICE 2008 continues to lead by example and promote sustainable practices amongst teens.
The hood of a Volkswagen Jetta TDI was autographed backstage at Teen Choice by attendees including Jerry O’Connell, Randy Jackson, Natasha Bedingfield, and Chris Brown, among others, and will be donated to City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
The newest edition to the Volkswagen family, the Jetta TDI runs on high-performance, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. Its reduced emissions meet the most stringent fuel emissions standards in California and all 50 states. The “T” stands for turbocharged, proving that you don’t have to sacrifice power and performance to be environmentally-friendly.
TEEN CHOICE 2008 is executive-produced by Bob Bain (“Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards”) and Michael Burg. Paul Flattery serves as producer, Kelly Brock is co-producer and Greg Sills serves as supervising producer.
