I watched this short a couple of nights ago on channel 4 as part of their 'Outside Zone' section of programmes. It's a fairly simple idea - Adam and the Ants make an eventful late-night trip to their local 24-hour supermarket - but it's played well with plenty of humour and respect.
Can't say I recognised Nick Moran as Adam Ant and had to rely on the end credit's for identification. He does look the spitting image of Mr. Ant and is quite amusing, especially when trying to control the 'kids' (the 2 drummers who I haven't got a clue what their names are). Mackensie Crook is fairly recognisable and comes across as a motherly figure (it's probably just the curly blonde wig and clothes he's wearing). Apparently a couple of the original Ants were involved in the film, contributing music and making cameo appearances.
One thing I didn't get was the other group of shoppers who were wandering around. Not being a child of the early eighties, I failed to get the joke but I imagine it would be fairly obvious to someone else.
After a quick google I see that it's possible to see and download from various places. I recommend you give it a go. There's also follow-on of sorts called 'Blake Junction 7' with a few of the same faces appearing. This also looks interesting from the trailer that's online.
