Wallace and Gromit Spread Holiday Cheer Through Google+ Hangouts

Aardman characters show off group chat

Wallace and Gromit are back, and pitching Google+ Hangouts, the group video chat client that allows people to spend quality virtual time with one another, in this fun 60-second spot from Adam & Eve DDB, rehabstudio and Aardman Studios. While I'm surprised, and a little disappointed, by the lack of cheese in this ad, the sheep cameo more than makes up for it. This is also one of those rare occasions where I wish there'd been a prequel. I would love to see 30 seconds of Gromit thanklessly setting up the wireless router. The spot makes good use of the season by suggesting Google+ Hangouts is a great way to get together at the holidays, even if you can't be in the same place.
