Public commentary as performance art

A YouTuber who goes by the name, Chad Kroeger (No, not that Chad Kroeger) has posted a series of videos taken from public commentary from public meetings in the greater Los Angeles area. Above you will see an impassioned plea against a potential ban on house parties in the Hollywood Hills. Interesting note, public commentary at LA City Council meetings is only one minute. Pretty harsh. Below you can see Chad and his buddy JT making a plea for a Paul Walker memorial sculpture to the San Clemente City Council. Note: his prop game is great.

Gentle readers, what do you think about this use of public commentary? On one hand, it may not be the best use of public official's time. On the other hand, it certainly adds some levity to public meetings.
