Watch this amazing ad for the Canadian Paralympics

(CBS News) Earlier today we showed you an incredible video of a veteran overcoming a walking disability. So to continue this theme of the inspiring and triumphs of the human spirit, check out this phenomenal single-take, no special effects advertisement for the Canadian Paralympics.

Powerful, right? I swear, we are all about the amazing and wonderful today and I'm loving it. The innovative ad features runner Alister McQueen and exemplifies the hardships and struggles that come with the journey to this event. I'm going to go ahead and include a "making of the ad" video below for those who are curious and note that the Canadian Paralympics take place in London from August 29th to September 12th.  If you'd like to learn more about them, you can visit the Canadian Paralympics website by clicking here.
