Emotional new Google ad about growing up with deaf parents leaves people in tears

we love 28/04/2021

Google's latest ad will have you reaching for the tissues!

The ad shares the story of Tony, a child of deaf adults (CODA), and how he has grown up with one foot in the deaf world, and one foot in the hearing world.

Writing in the caption, Google said: "As a CODA, or “child of deaf adults,” Tony has always straddled two worlds. And now that he hasn’t been able to see his parents in over a year, staying close is more important, but also more difficult, than ever. But with the help of assistive technologies like Live Captions and Google Meet, Tony and his family are able to share the moments that matter most."

Watch the tear-jerker above.
