Prosthetics star in some 2015 Super Bowl ads. Did you catch them?
The Super Bowl ads are always an event, but this year was special - two of them featured prosthetic patients.
In addition to the spectacle of the great game that is the Superbowl, this past Sunday's game also once again featured some really interesting and remarkably poingant advertising for some very large companies. Two stood out in our minds for obvious reasons - Microsoft and Toyota. Both ads prominently featured prosthetics patients. Microsoft's moving ad featured six year old Braylon O'Neill, who was born without tibia and fibula bones in his legs, and the technology used to analyse his needs and craft prosthetics to get the young boy running and playing sports like any other young boy. The Toyota ad speals of determination, with a voiceover form Heavyweight champ Muhammed Ali and begins with champion paralympion Amy Purdy, who was recently a top contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
