How do you educate about a condition nobody has ever heard of? I attempted to achieve media representation for polydactyls with three 30 second spots in three animation styles.
Spot 1: 6 questions about 6 fingers
When you're essentially the only polydactyl anyone knows, you have to answer a lot of questions about your body. Too bad they're all dumb ones!
Spot 2: Gunnar has 11 fingers
Gunnar's lifelong journey from social outcast to international socialite in 30 seconds. The vast majority of polydactyls are amputated involuntarily as infants by families who just want their kids to be normal. This is why people think Gunnar is the only polydactyl they know.
Spot 3: Lil Bub is a National Treasure
Lil Bub is the most famous polydactyl in the world. She is an adorable feline. She was taken from us too soon. We can all learn from her example.
