Very funny and the woman is a heroine who should have her own movie. 

There is a clip they showed on ITV, on 'It'll Be Alright On The Night' or
some such, that it reminded me of.

The scene: a summer fair, adults and children milling around. 

In an area where various people are trying to entice the punters is a Ronald
McDonald with balloons that he steps forward to give to passing children,
thus resembling the child-catcher from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' in
clown-paint; next to Ronald is a kangaroo on a leash as per the above video.

Kangaroo looks sideways in an agitated manner as Ronald smilingly goes
forward and offers his balloons. Kangaroo's eyes and shoulders lower.
Kangaroo obviously no longer looking at Ronald by turn of head but perhaps
casting sideways glances. Kangaroo does small agitated leap and is restrained
by leash-holder. Kangaroo settles down. Ronald goes forward, back, forward,
back. Ronald steps forward again and gives more kids some balloons. As soon
as Ronald has stepped back the 'roo goes mental and before the leash-holder
can do anything the 'roo has kick-boxed Ronald to the ground and is bouncing
in a heavy-weight champ 'get-up-if-you-want-more' stylee. The 'roo is
restrained and pulled back as Ronald gets up smiling his fake clown smile to
the puzzled children before him. 'Roo, having none of it, weighs in again
with an even more devastating kick-box assault -until the leash-holder and
some others drag him off. And so on...As the woman on the vid intimated the
'roo knows how global capitalism is threatening its very existence and is not
afraid to show it.
