VanMoof, a Dutch-based ebike brand, has teamed up with animation gurus Rowdy for this witty spot showcasing the safety features of its bicycles.

In what could have been quite a dry topic, ‘Hard Times For Super Thieves’ is a mockumentary-style film filled with one-liners that cleverly focuses on the elaborate careers of three individuals who pride themselves on being top swindlers.

Directed by Tobias Fouracre, who has worked on award-winning films including Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Wes Anderson’s Fantasic Mr Fox, the video sees the three characters recount many of their past trickster triumphs. The ‘Master Lockpicker,’ ‘Cyber Security Specialist’ and ‘International Art Thief’ each put their ‘skillsets’ to use, but to no avail – they cannot swipe the bike.
