Coming SOON ... to a website near You!

[Shot opens in total blackness, with the exception of a portly wolf who can be seen from the chest up in the distance. He is dressed very elegantly in a suit and tie, and his white pawkerchief is gleaming where it resides in his breast pocket.]

[MUSIC: Brief, sinister fanfare]

[The wolf raises a paw, and beckons toward the camera.]

Leonard Allworthy: Come closer!

[The camera moves in closer as the wolf continues to speak.]

[MUSIC: muted, sinister tones as Lord Leon speaks.]

Leonard Allworthy: I want to talk to you.

[The camera stops with a closeup of the wolf. He speaks to the audience, his gaze shifting from right to left as he talks.]

Leonard Allworthy: I’m going to tell you a story of astounding stupidity. The story of the Giant Gnat of Sinatra. For years, the Giant Gnat has carried the mystery of fabulous talent under its grotesque wings. I could tell you a thousand tales of the mels and femmefurs who have hunted… this strange bug. But every story has the same ending: humiliation. Listen to these incredible furs, all consumed by their passionate greed for the Giant Gnat of Sinatra…
