Instead, the milk program is going to use regular people doing regular things to sell milk, and will use the tagline ‘Milk Life.’

The first commercial for the campaign featured a man trying to answer “Aaron Burr” to win $10,000 from a radio station. The man, with a mouthful of peanut butter, ran out of milk and couldn’t respond to the question from the radio host. The campaign was a hit, and went national.
