Michael Bay Eating a Bowl of Cereal

This short film parodies recent cinematic trends in action films. The sound track is equally over the top, and it occurs to me that because the clip uses no dialogue and because, as a parody, it self-consciously invokes the rhetorical excesses of contemporary cinematic codes, it might serve as an effective example for a commutation test.

The easiest way to prepare the video for a commutation test would be to capture the video stream using something like or a program like Snapz Pro X for the Mac and then strip the audio using appropriate editing software (Quicktime Pro, MPEG Streamclip, iMovie, etc.).
