There were four 15 second promos, which were all narrated by a different character of the series.

Online Item Description: 

Haruhi continues her search for exciting ways to keep her world from being boring. Unfortunately, for Kyon and the rest of the SOS Brigade, they are forced to go along for the ride. On the night of the Tanabata Star Festival, Kyon is transported back in time by Mikuru Asahina to what may be the source of what led Haruhi to search for aliens, time travelers and espers. In the last two weeks of summer vacation, Haruhi leads the brigade on a dizzying list of summer time activities that leads the brigade into experiencing what they think is dejavu but they’re actually re-living the same two weeks of summer over and over again. It’s up to Kyon to figure out what’s missing to get them out of this endless loop. As fall rolls around, everyone prepares for the school arts festival, but Haruhi isn’t content with their class’s survey project. She, instead, hatches her own plan for the SOS Brigade to film and screen their own movie. Step behind the camera to see what went on to create the cinematic ‘masterpiece’ that is The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00.
