Two candidates for state assembly declared a truce in order to come together and participate in a production of a public service announcement: Saving The Children.
The Democratic and Republican candidates vying for the California state assembly position in district 81 agreed not to use their names in the commercial, to eliminate any possible charges of electioneering.
Arm in arm they stood in front of the smoke-damaged double-wide where little Todd Howard Jefferton was rescued by Hubert the Police Robot. Their script went like this:
Democrat: We have come together in order to save the kids plain and simple.
Republican: Parents, don't let your kids dress themselves. Go through their backpacks, check their online history. It could save their lives.
Together: Don't let them participate in the Naptimez Ova! Challenge!
Announcer: Little Todd Howard Jefferton was almost killed because he and some of his friends thought it would be fun to dress up like Billy Plimberton. It isn't funny.
Together: Kids. Say no to the Naptimez Ova! Challenge. It's not fun if it's risking your lives.
The Naptimez Ova! Challenge has been the rage at middle schools all over the country. Since mid-summer, hundreds of kids have been beat up by police because they were mistaken for fugitive terrorist Billy Plimberton.
At the end of the video the two candidates shake hands and return to their respective corners.
