If you were streaming the Oscars live last night (well done), you may have noticed a pretty cute Android ad during one of the commercial breaks.
Viewers in the US were totally charmed by the ad, which drove home a strong anti-bullying message through the medium of an animated rock, paper and scissors.
And everyone was in agreement that the whole thing was pretty damn cute:
That Android ad should be nominated for best animated short! #Oscars

OK stop the Oscars can we talk about that rock-paper-scissors Android ad please?

The ad was masterminded by Dublin animator Conor Finnegan, working with London-based design studio Nexus London.
It's not Conor's first run-in with the Oscars – his 2012 animation Fear Of Flying was longlisted for a Best Animated Short by the Academy, after scooping a heap of awards at film festivals in Ireland and beyond.
