A film clip featuring the Schaumburg Township District Library aired recently on the Ellen Degeneres Show, thanks to Schaumburg resident Anip Patel, winner of the "$21,000 Listerine Challenge."

When Patel decided to enter Listerine's contest, he shot his humorous video segments at the library, where he asked people to smell his breath after eating an onion and rinsing with Listerine.

His first "victim" was library receptionist Karen Bonar, who responded with a "What?" Following his encounter with Bonar, he asked the same question of other library patrons, then submitted his video clip.

Patel was clearly surprised when Degeneres asked him to join her onstage, then informed him he won the challenge. The video clip can be seen at www.ellentv.com/videos/0-wntm24xe/ or by searching for "Listerine $21,000 Winner" in Google or Yahoo.
