City Leaders Star in Parody Clips

Todd Gloria (L) and Brian Maienschein ham it up as Marius and Cosette.

The parody video is a tradition of sorts for the San Diego County Taxpayers Association Goldens - formerly known as the Golden Watchdog Awards.

You may remember in May 2011, the association produced a four-part "Hangover" remake. Or perhaps you don't remember.

Last night’s event was no exception with videos from two Hollywood blockbusters “Les Miserables” and “West Side Story.”

Mayor Bob Filner and City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, well their masks really, portrayed the feuding Sharks and Jets - one like a “bat out of hell”, the other one “ready to mix.” 

Then, in the vein of "Vive la resistance," there was City Council President Todd Gloria who took the lead in the Les Mis parody. The clip includes an unusually animated Chief William Lansdowne as “Javert” and Carl DeMaio as “Eponine.”
