Though a greeting card and maybe a new fishing lure or the latest Michael Connelly crime novel might have sufficed, these celebs decided to share their love with the world. (By "the world" we mean Instagram and Twitter, obviously.) Dad may still use a rotary phone, but, hey, it's the thought that counts.
From the sappy and sentimental to the humorous and heartfelt, these Father's Day messages are guaranteed to make you feel things. No shame if you feel compelled to give Dad another call or watch Field of Dreams four times in a row.
