"Hello? Hello? You're breaking up, I'll call you back."

So many of us have been there. Whether you are the self-conscious soul calling in -- and breathing your name into the receiver in response to the automated voice -- or one of the people in the conference room asking if there is anybody on the line.

Director Tripp Crosby shows that It's just as embarrassing and frustrating as you think, but you are not alone. Unless the call drops.

The clip was featured at this year's Saatchi New Directors Showcase at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. To see all of this year's new directors read the story on For more Cannes work highlights, tune into Creativity's "The Best of Cannes."
