Google's social network Plus wants to remind users that its suite of sharing tools can be used to bring together the family for the Holidays — in particular, it's video conferencing tool, Hangouts.

Not wanting to pass up a chance to do the ad in style, the folks at Google got together with animators Peter Lord and David Sproxton of Aardman for a ten-fold claymation reunion.

The ad stars Wallace and Gromit, hosting a Google Hangout get-together with a number of other famous Aardman creations, including characters from Chicken Run, Creature Comforts, and Shaun the Sheep.
