AT&T recruited film director Martin Scorsese to communicate with cinema audiences with the line, “Be Sensible”. Scorcese, the director of Raging Bull, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, appears in a commercial urging patrons to turn off their phones.
In this spot he interrupts a little boy’s bedtime telephone call to his father, much to the horror of the mother. “We won’t interrupt your phone calls. Please don’t interrupt our movies.”
