ZIM hasn't come up with a new scheme in weeks - not because he's out of ideas, but because of the constant distractions. (Dib's endless hounding! Gir's endless nonsense! Minimoose's deeply, deeply judgmental stares!) Because everyone else is the problem, ZIM inserts himself in a sensory deprivation tank, where his genius brain will be free to concoct the ULTIMATE PLAN in undisturbed isolation. He emerges six weeks later to a world completely changed. Everyone has fallen victim to a digital self-improvement program that seems to be subliminally conditioning them. And to ZIM's horror, the delightful digital mascot for the program is a cute little alien named "Zip" that looks extremely similar to ZIM's undisguised form.
