Levy, an Emmy-winning showrunner who is known for co-creating and starring in Canadian TV show Schitt’s Creek, is teaming up with Tostitos for a second year in a row to make sure people avoid FOMO at every get-together. One year ago, he starred in anther Tostitos commercial with SNL comedienne Kate McKinnon.

In the ad, Levy repeatedly misses out on memorable moments – including a baby’s first steps, a proposal and a shooting star – all by stepping away from the chips and dip. Goodby, Silverstein and Partners teamed with Levy on the effort which begins airing today.
