Oakley and DiMarco made the clip for a good cause: It's an effort to promote We Are Able, a new campaign from the folks at DoSomething.org aiming to "reduce the stigma around disability." 

DiMarco, who is deaf and identifies as sexually fluid, explained in the video why he's so passionate about the campaign.

"Accessibility is important because it is inclusive, which means more people are involved," he said in sign language. "It makes them feel important. I'm always inspired every time I meet hearing people and find out they know sign language."
