At the time of his death he was a shareholder (more than 16 million shares or about 1%), and served as a consultant for the company and Director Emeritus for the Board of Directors. He is perhaps best known for organizing the ousting of two top Disney executives: first, Ron Miller in 1984, and then Michael Eisner in 2005.

The short opens with Lorenzo lounging on the cushion. A black cat passes by, and Lorenzo can't help but express his glee that the stray is missing his tail. He flaunts his own luxurious backside accessory, and goads the cat with expansive displays of tailery. As Lorenzo laughs the black cat casts a hex, bringing Lorenzo's tail to energetic life. Lorenzo is little more than perturbed until the tail's incessant motion begins to take its toll. The pampered cat grows both exhausted and desperate, as it becomes apparent that even the most extreme measures (such as high voltage electrocution, drowning, and being run over by a train) will not quiet his tail. At junctures the black cat appears and offers Lorenzo a knife, his intentions clear. Lorenzo resists him just as strongly as he does his tail's advances. Lorenzo is however, finally driven to capitulate and severs his own glorious tail.

Le court métrage, dont la bande-son ne comprend aucune parole mais seulement une musique de fond, forme un tableau surréaliste dont les transformations sont guidées davantage par des proximités de formes et de couleurs ou des associations symboliques que par une logique narrative. Une jeune femme cherche à retrouver l'être aimé, personnage mi-homme mi-dieu, mi-Chronos mi-joueur de baseball, dans le labyrinthe d'une forteresse imaginaire. Elle voit et traverse une série de métamorphoses : le visage de son amant fond, elle s'habille d'une robe faite de l'ombre d'une cloche et devient pissenlit, d'une main trouée surgissent des fourmis qui se muent en Français à deux roues, la rencontre de deux profils montés sur tortues engendre une ballerine qui relance la balle d'une étrange partie... De nombreux motifs — montres molles, déserts bordés de montagnes noires, personnages évidés, globes oculaires... — renvoient explicitement à l'univers de Dali.
