AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) - Lee Leffingwell, the mayor of what might be Texas' most tech-friendly town, has zero tolerance for cell phones.
At least at the movies.
Leffingwell is joining the late Ann Richards month political figures to cut tongue-in-cheek commercials warning against phone calls, texts and sundry other boorish behavior that run before the featured films at Alamo Drafthouse locations.
"Hi, I'm the honorable mayor of Austin, Lee Leffingwell," the straight-laced mayor says from his post at City Hall. "And I strive every day to make this town a wonderful place to live.
"That's why when I hear about folks that leave their phone on during the move, I will work to destroy them."
The short clip reinforces the message with a screen-in-flames backdrop over the Alamo's logo. But it's not quite as dramatic as Richards' "I will take you out" piece that was cut after she left the Governor's Mansion and continues to run even after her death.
