Welcome to my super-ultra-mini minisodes!

Mini The Minisode Network is ready to roll on MySpace, featuring ultra-condensed episodes (four to six minutes each) of vintage TV series for your viewing pleasure, along with three-second billboards and five-second TV commercials. Frankly, my attention span still can’t handle it. We need to tighten these TV series and ad campaigns a bit more. Here’s a proposed programming block:
  Seinfeld. Jerry, Elaine and George sip coffee at the diner. Kramer dashes into Jerry’s apartment and falls over the couch. George: “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!”
  Star Trek. Kirk tongue-kisses green-skinned hottie. Spock neck-pinches a Klingon. McCoy: “He’s dead, Jim!” Enterprise zips through space.
  Coca-Cola. Music: “It’s the real thing.” Penguins prance across arctic glacier. Mean Joe Green throws jersey to kid. Happiness Factory churns.
  McDonald’s. Music: “You deserve a break today.” Ronald, Grimace, Hamburglar dance. Music: “I’m lovin’ it.”
  24. Jack shoots terrorists. Cars crash, planes explode. Jack blows up terrorists. Washington explodes.
  The X-Files. Mulder meets Martians. Scully explodes.
  60 Minutes. Ed Bradley: “Tonight, we tell you the real story.” Rapid-fire montage of postwar leaders from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush.
  UNCF/PDFA PSA mashup: “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” “This is your brain on drugs.” “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” “This is your brain on drugs.” “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”
