Earl the Deaf Barber

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This commercial was filmed at various locations in Orlando area, you get a glimpse of Deaf barber Earl Brigham (@ .14) who owns his own barbershop in Winter Garden, reminiscence of Norman Rockwell canvas of main street America. Earl was born in Panama, became Deaf when he was young, and grew up with strong work ethics and moral character. Earl is also a  Baptist pastor to the Deaf, I sometimes get my haircut there and noticed he has a unusual sense of humor and could have played in the NBA if he practiced a little bit more. Earl a great teacher of the Bible and a stubborn conservative, and I just can't put up with his Republican viewpoint. Politics and religion don't mix. Earl a great listener when you needed pastoral counseling, accepting his advice is another matter. We had great fellowship, going on retreats, etc. Earl is also proud of his children, one becoming a sheriff, another became an interpreter, establishing her own agency, and yet another one became a major league baseball player, al raised in Christian values.
 
Tiger Woods with his sassy sidekick, Frank, was also filmed at Earl's barbershop. I wonder if Earl gotten his Nike sneakers signed by Tiger Woods, he could sell it on eBay, and purchased land to build his own Deaf church with that kind of money.
