Mencap: Here I am

This is a commercial ad of Mencap. This commercial was released in October 2016 in United Kingdom. Under the title of “Mencap: Here I am”.

Learning disability has been invisible for too long. Now it’s time to see it.

Do you think children with Down’s syndrome should be hidden away? That’s what some leading academics were calling for not long ago.

Watch our film to see Casey, a DJ with attitude (oh, and Down’s syndrome too), destroy that view in his own skilful way.

It was done by The Corner, London advertising agency. And the commercial by Production Company is Rattling Stick and is directed by Ed Morris.

Lyrics:
There is no reason to feel guilty about putting a Down’s syndrome syndrome child away.
True guilt arises only from an offence against a person
And a Down’s is…
Not a person. Not a person.
Is
A person.
A person.
A person.
A person.
There’s no…
reason.
There’s no…
reason.
Down’s is a person.
A person.
person.
A person.
A person.
There’s no…
reason.
No
There’s no…
reason.
A person.
person.
