Cool one :) Are you somehow connected to that 'annoying thing'? I think I've seen the robot in some of those clips.
The first clip on vimeo was done with maya?
This is now LW?

I don't think that erikals have anything to do with Kaktus Film, but I might be wrong.

Anyhow...

The guy behind The Annoying Thing (Erik Wernquist), used LW to do the initial animation waaaay back before it actually became a hit/plague depending on how you see it. The larger productions (music videos etc) featuring The Annoying Thing was done at Kaktus Film, and as you all know, it changed the name to "Crazy Frog". Erik was of course involved with Kaktus Film when they worked on the music videos etc, and as far as I know, he (Erik that is), is still there from time to time. Apart from some modeling (regarding Crazy Frog), I'm quite sure that LightWave is not used at all at Kaktus Film.

Kaktus Film are currently using Maya and 3DS Max, as can be seen if you go to CGTalk and view the frontpage stuff. Their latest animation (smelly finger) for the Mega Robot was rigged and animated in Maya, rendered in 3DS Max/Mental Ray.
