Christopher Reeves our late Superman hero has done a real Yul Brenner and come back from the dead - in an ad!
In his death, like in his later life, he is promoting human embryonic stem cell research as the TV commercial is in support of a California ballot measure that would devote $3-billion to stem cell experiments.
The 30-second spot was filmed about a week before Reeve died of an infection Oct. 10. The ad began running on Friday in California, in it Christopher says;
"Stem cells have already cured paralysis in animals. Stem cells are the future of medicine. Please support Proposition 71 and stand up for those who can't."
Last Thursday, Reeve's widow publicly endorsed Kerry for President.
