Ever had anxiety about breaking the ice at a holiday dinner? A new United Airlines commercial has just the fix.

The commercial features two grandparent figures standing at the head of a table, decked out for a holiday meal.

The couple, who may or may not have been flight attendants back in the day, offer a pre-feast spiel similar to what you would hear before taking off on a flight.

And then things take a beautiful, emotional turn. As is the norm, most family members were glancing at their phones while sitting around the table.

Thanks for the happy tears, United Airlines!
