Commercials that send the right message


Last week, we showed you a commercial created by MADD, and it made many people, well, mad.  Now we bring you some of the best commercials we have found!

Each of these ads features wheelchair athletes, and each sends a slightly different message.  Two were created by Nike, and two feature U.S. Paralympian Matt Scott, a former high school wheelchair basketball teammate of mine. 

We realize that these are all centered around sports, which is another point we'd like to make.  It was very difficult to find any advertisements featuring a wheelchair-user in other "wheels" of life.
