Microsoft’s Super Bowl ads will pull at your heart strings

Microsoft will be firing up advertisements to cover Sunday's broadcast of the Super Bowl and the company has enlisted the help of none other than former NFL player, Steve Gleason to help out. It's a notable appearance since he'll be featured in Microsoft's first-ever national Super Bowl advert.

Battling ALS (better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), Gleason's appearance will be a special one due to his story and how Microsoft technology helps make his life easier.

Gleason is one of several people selected to showcase their story in the Microsoft advertisement during the game. Check out the two videos below from Microsoft that highlight how technology improves the lives of those with disabilities. 

Don't worry if you shed a tear. We certainly did.
