In honor of Eurovision, two Israeli NGOs produced a video to Neta Barzali's hit, "Toy," to raise awareness of people with special needs.
The video showcases 60 people with different disabilities, aged 10-70, all dancing to the song. Their message is to "Look at us!"
The clip was inspired by the "social message of the song that talks about accepting the different and the other, in order to break stereotypes about disabilities," Chimes Israel, one of the organizations behind the music video, said in a statement. "To empower those people, to inspire artistic endeavor and to call for the right of people with disabilities, to participate equally and actively in the community - in all spheres of life."
Chimes Israel worked along with the Maon Daho Association to complete the project. The organizations are focused on integrating people with special needs into the community.
