Ether Jones is trying to meet President Hinckley's challenge before the end of the year. Mormon-themed cartoon goodness.
EDIT: By popular demand here is an explanation of what "President Hinckley's challenge" is- Pres. Hinckley is the Prophet or leader of the Mormon church (our equivalent of the Pope). He challenged all the members of the church to read the "Book of Mormon" (one of our sacred texts in addition to the Bible) before the end of the year with promises that anyone who did so would enjoy greater spirituality in their lives and draw closer to God.
This animation tells the story of a young man who procrastinated this challenge until new year's eve so has to read through the over 500 page book at break-neck speed.
