This five minute viral film was made for British multinational telecommunications company Vodafone using material from their 'Static Dolls' campaign which Chris also wrote and directed. The story of the struggling mannequin band was used as a comic counterpoint to the high profile bands which Vodafone sponsored for its Europe wide 'Live Music' campaign which culminated in the Vodafone Live Music Awards. This short was played at each of the concerts which Vodafone sponsored and was released online. The viral feature the voices of British comedians Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) , Robert Webb (Peep Show) and Julia Davis (Nighty Night, Hunderby). As well as directing, Chris wrote and performed the music, designed the characters and co-wrote the script.
