Aardman studios go up in flames

Serta2Sad news this morning: A fire in Bristol, England, has destroyed the studios of Aardman Animations, makers of Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and Chicken Run. The news reports have focused on the movie sets and props that were lost—it sounds like everything but the materials from the latest film. Aardman, of course, has been involved in numerous commercials as well, creating, among other ad stars, the Serta sheep and the Chevron cars.
