Newport Beach, California–(Newsfile Corp. – May 16, 2019) – Vivera Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a pharmaceutical company focused on non-addictive pain management, today announces the appearance of its TVIA Kit™ in the hit video for the best-selling single “Boy and a Man” by Backstreet Boys member AJ McLean. The video has been viewed over one million times since its debut last month, and the song will appear on the recording artist’s upcoming debut solo country album, Long Road.
Inspired by the Pixar movie “Up” and directed by René Elizondo, Jr., the emotional video tells the story of a man, McLean, and his lifelong love, played in part by McLean’s wife, Rochelle. It shows them falling in love as children, getting married, and growing old together. In a scene at the end of the couple’s time together, the TVIA Kit™ is seen on the bedside table. The video was produced by Malibu Films.
“I was drawn to the song, and country music in general, because of the storytelling,” said McLean. “‘Boy and a Man’ tells the story of growing up, falling in love, finding out who you really are, and coming to terms with it. That’s something we can all relate to.”
“We were thrilled when AJ, a member of Vivera’s Ambassador Board, suggested that we include the TVIA Kit™ in a scene where his aging wife struggles with pain,” said Olivia Karpinski, Co-founder and Director of Vivera. “We created the kit to help ease pain and provide comfort, so it was very fulfilling and an honor for all of us at Vivera to see the kit featured in this beautiful love story and depicted on film.”
