Microsoft Super Bowl Ad “Empowering” Celebrates Technology with Former NFL Pro Steve Gleason

Microsoft’s Super Bowl XLVIII commercial “Empowering” showcases an uplifting series of ways in which technological marvels empower us. The ad is narrated by former NFL player Steve Gleason, who has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), using Microsoft’s Surface Pro and what appears to be Tobii EyeMobile to track his eye movements in order to speak.

Technology has taken us places we’ve only dreamed, empowering us to make the impossible possible. Celebrate the people using Microsoft technology to break barriers and inspire us all.
