This Inspiring Duracell Commercial Starring Deaf NFL Player Derrick Coleman

Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman has endured many struggles. He was picked on, had trouble with his coaches, and went undrafted after playing at UCLA. People said he should quit. But as Derrick explains “I’ve been deaf since I was 3, so I didn’t listen.” Derrick Coleman, the first deaf offensive player in the NFL, tells his inspiring story in this Duracell ad created by Saatchi & Saatchi New York. And apparently, a lot of people are watching and listening…more than 5 million YouTube views in less than a week. Trust the power within. Great work.
