Which video. I get the message that I must be lost and then a number of
links appear. What is the name of the precise link?

Thanks for the update, I have made the following comment on the video site
and will encourage all of my facebook friends to do the same, "DISLIKE, This
is not a real blind person, it is an actress pretending to be blind. I find
this to be very distasteful and offensive to all blind people."
