Drawing inspiration from movies such as Labyrinth, Dark Crystal amd Easy Rider, Ross S Anderson utilises traditional puppetry to create the retro feel in this charming promo for Them Things' O Brother.

The road movie centres on a small hitchhiking goblin who is lost and needing assistance to find his way home. Them Things pick him up in a beautiful 1969 Mustang, who help him search for his 'magical gateway home', becoming best of friends along the way...
