"Hard Times For Super Thieves" is a playful new campaign that demonstrates the power of VanMoof’s anti-theft technology and Peace of Mind coverage. The film takes the form of a series of mockumentary-style studio interviews with some highly-skilled e-bike burglars, who speak candidly to the camera about their troubled attempts to steal a VanMoof. 

We collaborated with Oscar-nominated Isle of Dogs, Fantastic Mr. Fox & Corpse Bride animator Tobias Fouracre to create this charming depiction of The VanMoof S3’s theft-defying tech.
