Logo: On a grainy, light blue background, there is a section of the background where it is peeled away to reveal static. A rectangle of static emerges from it and lands below the static section as "MG" and "Perin, Inc." slide in. Above "MG" is "Distributed by". When the text slides in contact with the static rectangle, it turns into a blue, segmented rectangle. The static continues until we fade out. All the text below the static section has a drop shadow.
