What @AdWeek said: “Toyota goes the inspirational route, telling the powerful story of Paralympian Jessica Long. It’s very well done, artistic and interesting. Not an easy achievement in 60 seconds.”

Today, praise for the ad’s creativity and interest in Jessica’s story continues with articles and interviews at CNN, People.com, Marie Claire, Today, NBC Olympics, Swimming World, Women’s Sports Foundation, USA Today and the list goes on.

Jessica’s hope is that one day the Paralympics will not need explanation. Here’s to this compelling ad “Upstream” and the resulting follow up stories getting us closer to that day.

Jessica is represented by Sandra Bishop.
