Scooping Out Shades

Having a hard time convincing your young patients to strap on a pair of sunglasses? Well, fret no more, point tweens to the popular web series “Detention Distractions,” which features Eyes Cream Shades on several episodes.

This raucous web-based sketch comedy show has been broadcast on more than 10 of the largest Internet video sharing sites including YouTube, and since its premiere in August 2009, has garnered 200,000 viewers. Members of the cast have been featured on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Zooey 101,” “Greek,” “90210” and “Glee.”

Those hard to please teens may be more inclined to throw on a sweet pair of UV-protective shades after watching these witty webisodes.
