When daytime soap "All My Children" relocated to Los Angeles from New York City to save money on production costs, it was a big plus for the local economy. So to celebrate, the show arranged to have the city's two top politicos to make guest appearances.

It's an odd stretch to see them cruising the social circles of the oh-so scandalicious Pine Valley while doing city business (you know, looking for jobs, being green), but what's more awkward is Villaraigosa's maniacal stage smile and Garcetti's not so graceful stage exit. If we learned anything from these two clips, it's that soap actors actually do have acting skills!

But we tease. If you haven't heard Garcetti sing and play piano, you're in for a great show. See his appearance below.
