Produced for a compilation video of 1 minute pieces by various artists called ‘Miniatures’. A lurid collage of images and text appropriated from the British mass media — TV news, tabloid headlines, advertising graphics — is accompanied by a narrator’s wryly delivered anecdote on the “non-event of the year.” Boy George, Royal Couples, political scandals and Halley’s Comet vie for the title in this vivid, 60-second media time capsule. – Electronic Arts Intermix
