NORWALK, Conn. – In a true sign of the apocalypse, two Norwalk politicians who are normally seen at war with each other were spotted Tuesday night standing side by side and yucking it up on the Concert Hall stage.

Republican Mayor Richard Moccia and Democratic Councilman David Watts (D-District A) were united for a cause to promote a concert, ironically titled “Divide and Conquer.” 

Looked like you couldn’t possibly split the pair up, at least for 60 seconds.

The March 22 concert in Concert Hall is being put on by E1 Youth and Real Time Records, headlined by Jinx God. Tickets are $5.

Unfortunately, the Norwalk leaders’ heads are cut off during much of the video, shot by Shon Rivera of E1. “I tried but my tooth was out – did not want to look up and talk, which lead to the heads being cut off,” Rivera said in a tweet Thursday, adding “LOL.”

The audio is fun.

“They was once enemies but now they cool,” Rivera said.

“No, we’re always friends,” Watts said.

“Sometimes we disagree, but we work it out,” Moccia said, with one of his signature rubber-faced expressions added for emphasis.

Watts later quipped on Facebook: “Norwalk’s Odd Couple, Felix and Oscar.”

    Someone who can’t even properly film two people speaking is supposed to manage a rap concert at city hall….seems legit.

    What we don’t see that shiny metaphorical object that Watts has in his left hand pinned up against the Mayor’s back. There’s one with Harry’s name on it, too!
