"Ron Howard's Call to Action" was a short that Ron Howard made leading up to the 2008 election. He gets into his Opie Taylor and Richie Cunningham personae to meet with Andy Taylor (Andy Griffith) and the Fonz (Henry Winkler) and encourage them to vote for Barack Obama.
OK, so it's a little hokey. Especially since our national elation after that election has given way to a feeling that Obama hasn't done what most people hoped for. At least Howard was encouraging people to vote. I personally would have liked to see the Fonz meet Andy (or would Andy have arrested Fonzie?).
Whatever. It's not a bad short, just sort of silly.
