Boy with Cerebral Palsy defeats Crota…with his feet

1 min read


I’m sure you’ve all seen – or at least heard of – the Daniel Day-Lewis film, My Left Foot, where he played an Irish artist with Cerebral Palsy, a disease that severely affects movement and motor skills. That makes doing the most mundane things, things you and I take for granted, painful tasks. Even for the able-bodied, defeating Destiny Raid boss Crota is an accomplishment – and there are videos all over the internet where people show their impressive wins over Crota. None are more impressive than this feat, a person with Cerebral Palsy, who beats Crota with his feet.

YouTube user Brian McDonough posted the video of his friend, Derek (lx_Tks_xl), kicking the ass out of Crota – as the swordbearer no less. In a normal 4 man team, this is tricky enough, but being the swordbearer in a two-man set-up is doubly impressive – requiring the utmost timing and skill. He does this with his feet. The wide smile and the high-fives at the end make this the best gaming related video you’ll see today.

Being able to play games is something I think most of us take for granted, and it’s one of the reason’s I’m so excited and happy about the new accessibility options on the PlayStation 4 that make it easier for the disabled to play games.

There’s GoFundMe page to help fulfil Derek’s dream of going to Disney World. A kid who can destroy Crota with his feet deserves some time at the Magic Kingdom.

    Big ups to his friend aswell.
    its tough treating disabled people like everybody else, rather than pitying them, but hes there talking to him like a bro and playing video games.
    Its a fine line to walk, not sure i could pull it off.
    they make for an odd pair too. one with CP and the other big and tatted up.

    I watched the documentary on the LoL player than plays with his feat and even though he owns his disability and doesnt let it stop him, people still tip toe’d around him.

    Disabled people are not just a disability.

    As someone who has a relative who suffers from a disease that makes general life difficult I can honestly say that just reading this makes me of proud Derek’s achievement.

    I have a friend that lost his right hand when he was very young. He is very well adapted to life without a hand but I was dumbfounded when I saw him play Mortal Kombat with a controller using his stump. People with defects or disabilities must not sit and pity themselves, they must make the most of it because only then will they be treated the same as normal people.
