This two-and-a-half-minute piece captures a contentious day at the park/playground as different factions of parents--with their infants in tow--duel over who’s best, taking jabs at one another. We have working career moms vs. yoga moms, stay-at-home dads, breast-feeding moms, and formula moms.

However the us vs. them, trash talking scenario takes a turn when a stroller carrying a baby gets loose and heads down an incline, bringing the parents together in what’s described as a “sisterhood of motherhood.”

Baker Smith of harvest films directed this unifying story that finds common ground among parents who seemingly have none. Agency is Publicis Kaplan Thaler, New York.
