IMPLEMENTING THAT GUY

Looking for an easy way to roll out the campaign? Try the following quick tips for implementation:

  • Work with your installation’s Public Affairs Office to air the spots on your installation or with a local radio Public Service Director to see if they will air them for free.

  • Place That Guy mini-posters or Evolution of That Guy posters in bathroom stalls in recreation centers, bars, clubs, dining halls, and other places the target audience is likely to frequent.

  • Distribute coasters and playing cards at sporting or entertainment events, or clubs and restaurants.

  • Create your own That Guy T-shirts and pass them out to recruits or at social events.

  • Set www.ThatGuy.com as the homepage on computers in common areas accessed by junior enlisted.

  • Air a That Guy PSA on your installation’s closed circuit television station.
