Life finds a way.

Toolstation: “Leccysaurus” - 30s

Toolstation return with another creature feature in this amusing instalment of their latest campaign. Once more directed by Guy Manwaring, the film shows an engineer from the advertised company arriving at a farm to fix an electrified fence. However, it quickly becomes apparent that it's no domestic goat they're trying to keep contained...

A skilful blend of 'Jurassic Park' references (a mug of tea shuddering with approaching footsteps is a particularly nice touch) and gentle humour keeps this quirky affair grounded, giving viewers an entertaining insight into what Toolstation has to offer. A final glimpse of the T-Rex itself ensures an affectionate narrative pay-off, too.
