Go on the hunt for a lost dog with a Russian pet detective and Skype

Microsoft has enlsited Russia's missing pet detective Valeriy Sugrobov for its latest campaign, to highlight how Skype is a powerful communications tool when time is of the essence.

The documentry-style short film, by Pereira & O’Dell, is part Skype's wider "The Things We Can Do" campaign, which shows how real people use the app around the world.

In the short film, Sugrobov stalks and captures a lost cat and finds a missing dog named Donut.

A shorter two-minute version of the online film will debut in U.S. cinemas. A companion website outlines how Skype can help when a pet goes missing.
