Microsoft's Braylon O'Neill Super Bowl Ad

We Loved Everything About Microsoft's Super Bowl Ad

Add Microsoft to the list of Super Bowl ads that brought on the tears last night. The tech giant featured 6-year-old Braylon O'Neill in a commercial that showcased how the boy, who was born without tibia and fibula bones in both of his legs, is running, jumping, golfing, and playing tennis thanks to the technology created by Microsoft. Braylon wears prosthetic legs to compete in athletic activities, which, according to an emotional voice-over by Common, is part of Microsoft's goal of empowering "every individual and every organization do more and achieve more."

According Braylon's mom, the family didn't tell him that the ad would appear during the Super Bowl, so he was surprised to see himself on the big screen. "He had seen the commercial, but we told him we weren't sure if it was going to be on TV or it was going to be on the Internet," said Kelly O'Neill.
