Cape Town – A campaign recording Wimpy's efforts to let visually impaired people know that braille menus are available in all of their restaurants has created a buzz on social media sites.

The ad shows chefs painstakingly using sesame seeds to spell out a special message in braille on the tops of burger buns.
