A Chinese company is garnering some attention for its new line of sunglasses called Helen Keller, named after the deaf and blind American woman who became an advocate for people with disabilities.
A new commercial ad has surfaced of a woman walking off a plane and past a long line of photographers. At first, the photographers don't do anything, but when the woman puts on the Helen Keller glasses, they start taking her picture.
The company's slogan for the eyeglasses: "You see the world, the world sees you."
A spokesman for the company told the Wall Street Journal that it is aware of Keller's blindness, but named the sunglasses line after her because of her philanthropic spirit.
According to the Journal, Keller's story is taught in Chinese schools.
