Wallace & Gromit will be starring in a brand new festive video that aims to help family and friends connect this holiday season. The duo will be appearing along with a number of other Aardman Animation characters for the first time via Google+’s Hangout feature. The other Aardman Animation characters that will make an appearance include Trixie and Captain Cuddlepuss from Creature Comforts, Shaun the Sheep, and Ginger from Chicken Run.
Google has provided a little holiday cheer to Hangouts invites with a custom Wallace and Gromit video invitation that can be sent to family and friends. To get or send one, you can go to familyhangouts.withgoogle.com
“Cristian Cussen, head of marketing at Google+, Europe, Middle East & Africa notes, “We are thrilled to see Wallace and Gromit use a Google+ Hangout to join the rest of the Aardman family for the very first time. We would love for families and friends everywhere to easily connect over the holidays. For those who can’t make it home this year, they can still spend the holidays together through Google+ Hangouts.”
“Merlin Crossingham, creative director for Wallace and Gromit adds, “There is nothing like getting together with your family at Christmas, and having worked with all of these characters over many years that is exactly how this project felt to me. Seeing all of the Aardman characters coming together for the first time is something we are sure our fans all over the world will absolutely love.”
