It took animatronics expert John Nolan – he’s worked on lots of films, including Harry Potter, Where the Wild Things Are, and Clash of the Titans – two months to make the 1 min, 28 sec long faux-ad Nolan’s Cheddar. It’s about…just watch it (and make sure you have the sound turned up):

Seriously strong indeed. While Nolan didn’t post any instructions or walkthrough or at least a reason why he made the film (not that he needed any), here are some behind-the-scenes pictures that he shared on his website.

It was a robot rat?! So it wasn’t the cheese after all. Sad face.
