Armature gone bad

This was a basic test of building a wire armature, putting clay on it and then doing a short walk animation. Well that was the idea, but it quickly became obvious that the armature was too strong (braided 16 gauge steel) and the clay too soft (the cheapest thing on the art store shelf). So you wind up with a difficult to move skeleton and clay that “records” every thumbprint. What could you but just animate how easily it breaks?
