Comedian Chris Parnell (Saurday Night Live, 30 Rock) fronts a new campaign for Orbit Gum that centers around "dirty" dating with the tagline "Keep it clean."

The campaign, via Energy BBDO, includes a spot in which Parnell plays "Dad" giving America a talk about dirty dating. He discusses how things have “gotten a little dirty” in the modern world of dating apps. Although he admits he might have sent a "dirty fax" or two in this time, "no eggplant emoji has ever got near a peach emoji." He also pulls out a pack of Orbit to encourage people to "keep it clean."

SNL director Paul Briganti of Tool helmed the spot. It's also being supported by a "dirty dating" chatbot on Tinder, allowing people to send personalized messages from Parnell telling their matches to clean up their act if they receive unsolicited dirty messages.
