I was watching tv last night and saw a Swiffer ad featuring a man who is a left below elbow amputee. Disabled actors in non-military-themed and non-medical themed programming are something we almost never see on tv. Here's an article about him and his budding acting career with a link to the ad video.
it's such a breath of fresh air to see a person with a disability presented in an "everyday life" situation instead of performing athletic feats or showcasing another "remarkable" endeavour.
I couldn't agree more. Thanks for sharing, Devushka!
+1. Why does it always have to be disabled guys being pushed around in hospital wheelchairs (in 'stock' photos) or being amazingly and exceptionally superhuman? Why can't they just be human, like in this ad?
