John McNeil, Brooklyn based jazz trumpeter/educator, played left-handed for a few years when he lossed the use of his right hand. He even recored an album left-handed, "Fortuity". He did eventually regain the use of his right hand.

Speaking of ads - there's one for Lexus touting the sound system and the trumpet player has his entire right thumb shoved all the way up between the leadpipe and belltube, so the knuckle at the base (carpal-metacarpal) of his index finger is on the valve button. Perhaps he plays that way.
Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.
Here is a link to one of the most famous cornet players who played left handed by necessity; Long Island's own James F Burke:
