Male model Nyle DiMarco doesn't even say a word in a new video released by the Hillary Campaign -- but not because his looks do the talking -- his hands do, as Mr. DiMarco is deaf.

Mr. DiMarco, a Wilhelmina-repped model and alum and winner of both the "America's Next Top Model" and "Dancing With the Stars," speaks in sign language to deliver his message despite muted social media hurdles.

"You can leave this ad muted -- there's nothing to hear," he signs. "And keep scrolling past it if you want, we're used to being ignored. But if you're still listening to my voice, please know that there are a lot of people out there without one. Among the 50 million Americans living with a disability, many don't have the ability to work, to travel or to do countless other things you might take for granted. So this November, please consider voting for the only candidate with a plan to change that."

With that, he simply raises his hand to highlight the url "Because the voice of your vote, is the greatest voice we have," he concludes.

Stark contrast to this.
