Can you help the insane singing creatures?

Generally speaking, I'm wary of both the holiday season and of wild animals made to sing and dance like people via the magic of special effects. That's basically what we've got in this PSA from the BBC. Snakes, lizards and insects breaking out in song, squirrels jamming on saxophones—it can't bode well for the long-term survival of the human race. That musical larva (or whatever it is) at about 0:50 is just bizarre. It's a bee larva, judging by the way it drones on. (I am sorry I just wrote that.) Worst of all, with those red animated lips, even the baby birds look malevolent. The campaign asks viewers to "do one thing for nature this Christmas." Oh, I will—I'll lock the doors and windows so the beasts stay outside where they belong! Except for the goose, which can waddle right in and keep the Yorkshire pudding company. Via AdverBox.
