The Best Ad Ever!

One of my best friends sent me this link today. Her email subject was "the best ad ever", and I share it because I agree.

I'm posting this link pretty much on its own because I want people to see it before the link stops working. If anyone can translate the French for me, please let me know what the titles are.

I've always thought that when you see crips in ads, on TV, in movies and in cartoons (ala John Callahan), it will be evidence that we are beginning to make in-roads into the mainstream culture.

Check it out!

per comment from Rebecca, translation of French in above commercial:

Woman at counter: Hello, I would like to open an account.

Writing: The world is harder when it's not designed for you

Voice-over/writing: From now on, the EDF areas are accessible for everyone

Voice-over: When your life lights up: EDF

EDF=Energie de France - National electric/power provider

Thanks, Rebecca!
