They Go On was a dot-com era Internet-only soap opera developed by Levi Strauss & Co. and NBC Digital Productions and streamed from NBC's website. The show, funded entirely by Levi Strauss, was based on characters from their advertising campaign of the same name.

The show featured characters from the ads, such as D.J. Marcus and the Impala man, with two lead characters introduced for the show, Chloe (played by Laura Prepon) and Zack. Chloe and Zack interacted with the viewers during the "broadcast" via an Internet forum that was part of the website.

Tarsem from @radical.media directed the original ads. NBC Digital Productions then created a new media drama which tied together the ads and added interactive features.

It was touted as a new example of the blurring of the lines between advertisements and entertainment, an alternative to product placement, infomercials, or various forms of undercover marketing.
