Toyota "As I really am" by The & Partnership

Toyota's beautifully shot film for the Olympics is a stirring tale of human strength and determination.

It stars world champion wheelchair fencer Beatrice "Bebe" Vio, who came back to fencing after having her limbs amputated due to meningitis. The ad is part of Toyota’s global "Start your impossible" campaign in collaboration with the International Olympic and Paralympic Committees. It was art directed by Giambattista Menna and Eugenio Chiapparelli, written by Roberto Ottolino and Luca Scarponi, and directed by Philippe Tempelman through Filmmaster Productions.
