Offensive or not? The ad for industrial noise compensation that shows a bar man speaking to a deaf customer by loud speaker

Posted on May 22, 2014

We’re not sure whether this advert for people who might seek compensation for noise-related hearing loss is the best way for a firm of solicitors to gain more business.

First, by showing a bar man speaking to a deaf customer by LOUD SPEAKER, it doesn’t exactly approach the subject of deafness with any sensitivity.

Second, it doesn’t have any subtitles (at least not in this online version) so that deaf customers can actually understand it…
