England, seemingly not content with hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics, are making a push for the 2018 World Cup, and they’ve brought out none other than Wallace and Gromit to help garner support with this short video, seen after the jump. It’s brief, but the man-and-dog claymation duo keep their same dynamic. Wallace invents ridiculous crap that malfunctions and Gromit saves the day. And the “Hand Of Dog!” headline is terrific, along with the nod at the end to one of the UK’s more renown stadium chants.
Prospective host nations are expected to make formal bids today. –via The Guardian (UK)
