Clay Weiner of Biscuit Filmworks directed this package of spots which take us to the family dinner table where the father, played by comedian Will Ferrell, is oblivious to everything except his smartphone. Overdosing on social media, he’s of no use during what should be quality family time.

In this ad titled “Cat Filter” we see kids seemingly in mourning, talking about how they miss their dad. The wife is also sad. But we find out that poppa is alive and well. It’s just that his presence is missed as he’s playing with a filter that makes him look like a cat on his mobile device.

Creative for the “Device Free Dinner” campaign for client Common Sense Media came out of Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

“We know that kids who have dinners at the table without devices get better grades, have healthier eating habits and are more socialized than kids who have devices at the table,” said Margaret Johnson, partner and CCO, GS&P. “So we enlisted some celebrity help to show the importance of having device-free dinners.”
