Foundation Integration "I'm not asking to be a firefighter" (2016) 1:40 (Poland)

Here's an interesting take for a employment center that specializes in finding jobs for disabled people. Instead of going down the pandering route or the depressing route, they decided to have some fun by putting disabled people in jobs they have no business doing. In this case, firefighters. After watching them fail at their jobs they introduce themselves and explain they don't want to be firefighters. They're artists and musicians and teachers, and Foundation "Integrated," helps place them in the right job.

In explaining the rationale, here's what the press release had to say:

“Am I allowed to laugh?” – you may ask yourself, giving proof to a taboo which bans disabled people from the most natural way of self-expression – joking around. However, as we arrive at the ad’s finale, we learn that it was just an act of self-mockery – a generally appreciated mature sense of humor.
