In most neighborhoods, parents fight school budget cuts with protest marches and/or op-eds in the local newspaper. But not in my ‘hood…oh, no!
The parents at nearby Wonderland Avenue Elementary (in the Hollywood Hills) were understandably irate about the proposed education cuts from the state budget. So the school’s PTA president came up with the idea of creating a video, and one parent suggested they ask fellow parent Brian Austin Green (yes, David Silver from the original “Beverly Hills, 90210” — or, as he’s known these days, “that lucky bastard who dates Megan Fox”) to star in it. Brian, whose son attends the school, agreed, and the lucky bastard also got Megan to costar in it.
Well, if there’s ANYTHING that would get Governor Schwarzenegger’s attention, that would be it.
The video, titled “Hot for Teachers” (again, Arnold’s interest is bound to be piqued), went live on Will Farrell’s Funny or Die site.
In terms of Megan’s comedic chops… let’s just say I wouldn’t necessarily go with “funny.” But I’m sure she is very popular at the school’s fund-raising car washes. (Somewhere, Mr. Candy is lamenting that Skye isn’t school-age yet.)
