Kathmandu
'Follow That Kea!'

Patience is kea.
by Andrew MacGregor

Stefan Hunt directs this madcap spot for outdoor brand Kathmandu. A bird puts the kea into kleptomaniac when, straight from the 'Untitled Goose Game' playbook, it steals a man's wallet and flies away. Some hikers would give up and let nature triumph, but not this one.

He and his two friends pursue the bird in a caper inspired by martial arts films and Hong Kong action cinema. The music, sound design, and heightened performances are spot-on, but it also helps to have such a great villain. Kudos to the puppet department on this one.

The trio's choice of outdoor clothing helps them keep up with the kea in all weathers and across all terrain, but the only way to beat a bird like that is with lethal cunning—or a sandwich, to be more accurate. The accompanying staredown between hiker and parrot is a micro-masterpiece.
