Samsung Turkey had planned to promote the newly made video call center for individuals with hearing infirmities. As a result, they came up with an emotive moment for a person who suffers from hearing disability.
The team had set up cameras all over the city to watch Muharrem and his little sister as they were going in a walk. The two had no idea what they were in for the day. The young man looked surprised and happy when a passerby on the street greeted him with the sign language. He seemed stunned about it since it has always been very rare for someone to greet him in sign language.
The next coincidence happened when a lady bumped into their way. When the young man turned, the woman apologized using the sign language. At first I thought that they were trying to mess up with the young man but I’m glad that was not the case. What follows gave me goosebumps all over my body!
Muharrem’s neighbors spent a month secretly learning sign language
Hidden cameras were placed throughout his neighborhood
One day, Muharrem, a deaf man living in Istanbul, and his sister Ozlem headed out for a walk…
…and were greeted with an unexpected “good morning” – in sign language!
The local baker was in on it too, offering bagels in sign language
This man at the grocer’s dropped his oranges and when Muharrem and Ozlem picked them up for him…
…he offers them each an apple – in sign language
Muharrem’s confused – why is everyone signing?
Et tu, taxi driver?
This man is confused, but his sister knows what’s up
As they head to the town square, the team prepares for the finale
He’s surrounded by his signing neighbors!
His reaction says it all!
This goes to show how important it is to break down communication barriers…
…and how meaningful that can be for people who experience those barriers every day
It is incredible to see how a simple notion has been turned out to be so emotive. This is wonderful! What is your idea concerning this post? Did you like it?
