We do love a bit of stop-motion animation here at Shillo HQ. When it's combined with spooky Halloween characters we love it even more! And even though here in Oz we shun Marmite in favour of Vegemite, we're still pretty smitten with this campaign.  ...

Of Monsters and Men are musical geniuses (genii?), something akin to Arcade Fire with piano accordian, trumpet and timpani action aplenty.
