Advert: Channel 4 – We’re The Superhumans
Music: The Superhuman Band – Yes I Can
The Channel 4 trailer for the Rio 2016 Paralympics is another remarkable piece of work, following 2012’s groundbreaking Meet The Superhumans. This one is titled We’re The Superhumans, and it stars more than 140 disabled people from all walks of life, including Paralympians such as Ellie Simmonds, David Weir and Hannah Cockcroft. Also featured are The Superhuman Band, a specially-assembled Rat Pack-style group of disabled musicians from around the world, fronted by Australian singer Tony Dee. The song they’re performing is a special version of the 1965 Sammy Davis Jnr track Yes I Can, recorded at Studio 2 of Abbey Road studios. It’s available to download, with all profits going to the British Paralympics Association, on iTunes.
