Brooke Burke-Charvet Stars in a New Short Film Presented by CLARITIN(R) -- Available Today on YouTube

Film Presents a Crazy, Over-the-Top Look at a Busy Mom's Day With Allergies (March 21, 2012)

WHITEHOUSE STATION, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/12 -- Merck, the makers of non-drowsy CLARITIN® products, has teamed up with Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet this spring to create a new short film titled "The Difference is Clear." The film is a crazy, over-the-top look at two versions of one busy woman's day who is juggling work, life and family while also dealing with allergies. In the first version of her day, Brooke's character doesn't take her allergy medication, and her non-stop allergy symptoms cause an impossibly upside-down day, where nothing goes right and everything goes wrong. In the second version, she treats her allergies and has an impossibly outrageous day, so much so, that there is no limit to what she can achieve.

In her real life, Brooke is long-time allergy sufferer. She is eager to show that allergies don't have to interrupt your life. Brooke knows that allergy symptoms can sometimes get in the way, but with non-drowsy CLARITIN, she's able to get relief for her sneezing and itchy, watery eyes.

"My life is pretty hectic, from raising four kids, to hosting Dancing with the Stars, being co-CEO of and releasing a fitness DVD, so I don't want to let allergies get in my way," said Brooke. "It's important for me to keep my allergy symptoms under control, to help me be at my best on and off camera. That's why I choose CLARITIN for non-drowsy, 24-hour allergy relief. I'm so excited to be starring in 'The Difference is Clear,' and it was really fun to act out the two scenarios for my character in such a crazy, dramatic way."
