Dead car battery, cable isn't long enough to reach - but I have another cable. Can I combine the two?

I've got a car in a garage that I cannot get out of park (in order to push it back out), and its battery is dead because I left a light on. I have two jumper cables that, combined, would be long enough to reach another car parked right behind the dead one. Can I simply clamp the two cables together? Does this work? Or will I have to go find a longer one?
