Nolan’s Cheddar Mouse

UK film director John Nolan has launched a short film featuring a mouse with attitude. Nolan provides us with the tragicomedic story of a mouse who just can’t stay away from Nolan’s Strong Cheese, using the music of The Carpenters (Top of the World), The Doors (The End) and Survivor (Eye of the Tiger).

John Nolan is a director with Street Light Films, London.

Nolan trained a mouse for the opening shots but used animatronics for the rest. “The rat was actually a robot I made covered in silicon. It still had its real hair and nails of a dead rat, but I had to punch this in individually into the synthetic skin, a bit like how hair transplants work.”

    I think the commercial is f**king horrible and I would never buy Nolan’s again.

    • Duncan says:

      Then it’s a good thing this is only a short film with a fictional product and brand, and not really a commercial.

  2. Kieran Moroney says:

    Touche Duncan.

    What’s so horrible about it Patrick. It’s an inspiring story of one little fella somehow beating the odds.

    I would imagine getting out of bed every morning to face the world must be hard for you Patrick. It’s funny, it’s awesome how Nolan made the short,and…oh yeah…it’s FAKE. Its a freakin “commercial” not an ad to make you cry PETA boy. Its a story about a mouse, a piece of cheese, and the will to survive to eat that cheese. I love white sharp cheddar. I personally just use glue traps myself. Oh, you can’t buy the cheese…it’s FAKE.

    Glue traps work great!! Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in small pieces for bait. Every time a winner!

  6. Dave Scott says:

    John Nolan, the creator, nicked the strapline ‘seriously strong’ from McLelland of Stranraer.

    Brilliant, simply brilliant.
