Singing slugs

The new animation release "Flushed Away" features the blobby slugs, which act as a kind of a cappella Greek chorus, warbling vintage Bobby Vinton and Bobby McFerrin tunes to set the mood. They also scream like little girls when frightened, scattering at a snail's pace. Flushed Away is the first collaboration between Dreamworks, the folks behind the computer-generated Shrek, and Aardman, who gave us the claymation antics of Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit.

This clip is not a cappella but hey it's a slow a cappella news day and it's a fun clip regardless.
