There’s something special about Derrick Coleman, the Seattle Seahawks fullback whose recent Duracell commercial has football fans abuzz. Turns out, he’s deaf. But given the noise that Seattle fans make, there’s no way he can’t hear them.
The spot comes just as the Seahawks are gearing up to play the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game this Sunday.
“Me going out there and giving everything I have when I can and showing confidence, that just made the bond stronger and stronger,” Coleman told Sporting News. “Have no excuses in anything you do, and I’m not talking about just the hearing impaired, but everybody. If there’s something you truly want to do, you’ll find a way to do it.”
Watch the commercial below. If you’re not inspired, well, there’s nothing we can do for you.
