SimpliSafe's new Super Bowl ad teaser pokes fun at a well-known neighborhood type: the social media fear-monger. An ordinary man tries to go about his day, but a Greek chorus of nosy neighbors won't let him mow his lawn in peace. Tied to their smartphones, they subject him to a barrage of panic-inducing updates that will be familiar to anyone who has spent a little too much time swiping around their friendly local app.

The SimpliSafe teaser poses the question, "Wouldn't it feel good to fear less?" This Sunday, the home security leaders take on automation, big tech, the 24-hour news cycle, and more hyper-contemporary causes for concern.

The teaser is a first look at what's to come from SimpliSafe and creative agency, Preacher, in both companies' inaugural 30-second Super Bowl commercial. Look out for the real spot's debut toward the end of the first quarter.
