We’re The Superhumans

British TV channel ‘Channel 4’ just released their much-anticipated 2016 Paralympics spot. This was a daunting task, as it followed up on the award-wining 2012 version, which was so critically acclaimed that it led to the Paralympics’ highest viewing numbers in a decade.

While challenging, the new spot is genius. It showcases both sports-related and day-to-day activites, like taking care of a child, playing music, or having breakfast, in human and lighthearted scenes that transform the negative notion of ‘disability’ into something bearing determination and optimism. Bravo.
