Mucinex Partners with Legendary Magicians Penn & Teller to Make Mr. Mucus – the Epitome of Colds and Coughs – DISAPPEAR!

Live Performance in New York City's Grand Central Terminal Will Demonstrate How Mucinex 12-Hour Provides 12 Hours of Relief from Cough and Cold Symptoms

Parsippany, N.J., February 1, 2024When you're sick with a cold, don't you just wish all those pesky symptoms would magically disappear? (The cough! The chest congestion!). That's why Mucinex, a Reckitt brand and the #1 most trusted brand by physicians for cough & cold symptoms*, is teaming up with legendary magicians Penn & Teller to pull off a jaw-dropping feat for the ages: The two Las Vegas mainstays are making Mucinex's nefarious mascot Mr. Mucus vanish into thin air… and they're doing it live!

Suffice it to say, this is 'snot' your average magic show. On Wednesday, February 7th, Mucinex will proudly present "Mucus Disappearus with Penn & Teller" in New York's world-famous Grand Central Terminal, treating audiences to what's sure to be the sickest show of the year—at least until Mr. Mucus is finally out of our lives! To illustrate how Mucinex 12-Hour seems to work like magic by providing twelve hours of symptom relief, Penn & Teller are making everyone's least favorite goo goblin promptly evaporate in a puff of confetti.   

"For years, Mr. Mucus has caused misery with cough and chest congestion, especially during peak cold and flu season," said Penn. (Teller remained characteristically mum.) "But this time, he's gone too far, daring to crash our trip to New York City and hoping to infect innocent New Yorkers with his slimy symptoms. Needless to say, we can't wait until he's vanished off the face of the earth. Abra-cough-dabra!"

"We're beyond thrilled to be partnering with Penn & Teller," said Albert So, Marketing Director, Upper Respiratory Brands at Reckitt. "Who better than this legendary magician-comedian duo to demonstrate the effectiveness of Mucinex 12-Hour, the #1 doctor recommended expectorant*?"
