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).

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.”
