Adam Beach's health-related videos

Apparently the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada commissioned videos about women, sex, and health narrated by Adam Beach:

Adam Beach shares his thoughts on the strength and impact of women in his life and of the unique needs and concerns of Canada's Aboriginal women.Adam Beach speaks about the importance of health, safe sex, contraception, and the prevention of STIs such as HPV.Adam Beach speaks to Canada's Aboriginal communities about the importance of talking to kids about sex.Comment:  Everyone recommends making videos to communicate messages these days, so this is a smart move. But I don't know how effective these particular videos are. The talking-head approach is questionable even if it's Adam Beach.

For more on Beach, see Adam Beach as Superman? and Filming September Runs Red.

I don't get how Adam Beach doing this is any different than reading it. And for most women, if Adam Beach wanted to talk to them about sex, well, most of them would say "Who's Adam Beach? The Windtalkers guy?" The rest, presumably whom this video was aimed for, would want something other than a video on how to avoid HPV.
