Pepsi is launching a silent TV ad during this year’s Super Bowl game: Bob’s House. The 60 seconds of silence plays out a classic joke in deaf circles in the United States, in which two guys try to find the home of their friend Bob so they can watch the game together. It’s dark in the street and they can’t remember which number Bob lives at. The problem is solved by honking on the horn. Bob, their deaf friend, can not hear the horn and so is the only one in the street not to turn his lights on in response.

*Sumain: a proposed term to replace heavily baggaged and antiquated "deaf". In Old English, "deaf" means empty, barren. For centuries, "deaf" has been an epicenter of tug-o-war between the medical establishment, cultural group, and other dissenting groups, resulting in hundreds of thousands of casualties. This is the reason why it will be difficult to re-claim, re-frame the word (deaf) to identify individuals and a global community who are vital to the human diversity. "Deaf" people have been targeted by the eugenicists, systemically eradicated through genetic engineering and forced cochlear implantations.
