Baltimore Paralympian Jessica Long Featured In Super Bowl Ad

February 7, 2021

A Super Bowl ad told Paralympian Jessica Long’s story of her adoption from a Siberian orphanage by a Baltimore couple during a Toyota advertisement. The spot, titled “Upstream,” ran during the second quarter of Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast on CBS. It alternated shots of Long swimming with moments of her childhood and parents, who were told in a phone call recreated in the commercial that their 13-month old baby would need to have her legs amputated below the knee.
