Hi Dexcon

Correct I did but it's gone a little quiet so I thought I would ask the community ;)

Just looks like a mask drawn in AFX and then it just animates. You see in one part where it isnt very accurate along his back.

Nick I suspect Ready Brek actually comes in lead foil containers no idea why but a very nice marketing strategy. In fact pour cold milk on and it automatically gets hot amazing.

AFX = After Effects?
Just a guess on my part.

Good guess mike. I am a PC man which explains all. Mind you the way it's going....

Yes, After Effects, sorry

Here is one way. Note these are just steps and you will need to adjust and tweak at each step.

Create a keyframed bezier mask around the object.
Duplicate the track as a standalone (not a reference).
Invert and blur one of the masks to make the mask appear slightly larger than the object. You can zoom in slightly on the mask (optional). Zooming in will cause the over mask to get larger but will cause issues with any cutouts. The examples didn't bother with cutouts so it would not be an issue.
You can slightly blur the original mask to get the fade-in and fade-out effect.(optional)
Composite the 2 masks together. This should give you an animated 'halo' mask around the subject.
Overlay a solid color or pattern onto the 'halo' mask and add to the original video.

Good luck.

You could also use Blackmagic Fusion to track a bezier mask and then export the mask to Vegas where you could do the rest of the work.
