YouTube Commercial for Westheimer Block Party March 28

This hilarious clip features cameos by John F. Kennedy, Barack Obama, the cast of Mortal Kombat (the video game, not the awful movie), a bunch of low-riders and some bangin' techno beats. Thanks to our pals at Free Press Houston. You know, the more Rocks Off thinks about it - remember, that's March 28, free all day and $20 for the sick evening festival at Numbers with St. Vincent (swoon), Valient Thorr (rawk!), Devin the Dude (puff, puff, give) and more - he's more excited about the Block Party than SXSW. Is that wrong?
