The tale of the cuddly samurai

Seldom do I experience shivers of cuteness (I’m immune to kittens and cuddly animals), but, darn it, I have just felt a wee tremor up my hairy back. The unlikely source is US behemoth General Electric, who commissioned BBDO to create a series of limited-release filmlets gradually breaking across the pond.
According to the New York Times, there are four shorts which were produced from 159 scripts submitted by 100 BBDO staff members, and not just those who work on the GE account.
I’ve just watched this one on AdCritic and, thankfully, some kind soul has already posted it on YouTube.
Enjoy this twee fable of a cunning samurai warrior and a dastardly emperor.
