You Must Watch This Inspiring Commercial, Starring The Seahawks’ Deaf Fullback


We’re a few days late on this, but with the NFC Championship game coming up, it’s definitely still timely. And it’ll easily be in the running for commercial of the year.

The Seattle Seahawks have a deaf fullback named Derrick Coleman — the first legally-deaf offensive player in NFL history. The inspiring, awesome video is brought to you by Duracell.

“They didn’t call my name. Told me it was over. But I’ve been deaf since I was three. So I didn’t listen.”

(Go Seahawk$.)
