So, you want some ketchup?
The last animated short Yum Yum sent our way back in 2010 was about the perils of parallel parking. The focus of their latest film is that troublesome bottle of tomato ketchup that, no matter how much you shake it, just won't give up the goods...
Yum Yum has also created a set of collectible vinyl toys, one of which is the Hot Dog character that appears in the film:
The toys stand at approx 12cm high and the full set of five costs £60 + postage on pre-order from yumyumlondon.com
