Scenes from the upcoming Wallace & Gromit Christmas special have been leaked on YouTube, and the studio that made it has "no idea" how it got out.
The three clips from the special, A Matter of Loaf and Death, were uploaded to Youtube on Sunday but were quickly removed by the animators. The pirated version had terrible sound and picture quality, suggesting that it was recorded with a cell phone.
Audiences will now have to wait until Christmas Day to enjoy the adventures
of the cheese-obssessed inventor Wallace and his intelligent dog.
Of course, all this activity does create a viral buzz, which is the name of the promotional game these days....
