Appearing together with a number of other Aardman Animation characters for the first time, the video features Wallace and Gromit in a Google+ Hangout with Trixie and Captain Cuddlepuss from Creature Comforts, Shaun the Sheep and Ginger from Chicken Run. A Google+ Hangout is a multi­person video chat that support up to 10 people at the same time. They’re a fun way to relax and hang out with friends and family when you’re online.
