The advertisement showcases a significant initiative aimed at improving the lives of numerous amputees. It features individuals of diverse ages and backgrounds, thus promoting inclusivity in communication Additionally, the ad subtly challenges gender stereotypes by depicting women jumping in various situations, despite the prevailing social norms that view jumping as a masculine activity. By doing so, the advertisement helps normalise women's participation in jumping and encourages breaking gender barriers.
