Andy finally convinces Mayor Stoner to delay making his decision until he watches the band play while marching. At the appointed time the Mayor drives up and parks his car directly in front of the sidewalk bench where Barney seats him. In the very next shot, when the band is marching by, the camera is now behind the bench looking past Barney and the Mayor toward the street. The Mayor's car has suddenly disappeared from where it should be blocking the Mayor's view of the street and band. See more »
