We didn't know anything about it my manager was told that.
This gentleman was doing this survey on.
Riot doors -- the security doors -- come down around the the story in case said that when -- -- close.
She didn't think much about it a month later I got a call from an employee and said.
Jazz -- You're in an Obama commercial.
And I thought -- no.
Because it this business -- been nonpartisan for sixteen years strata.
And -- -- -- -- policy not to talk politics.
With our customer base because that's not what we're selling it -- -- -- in the market.
Whereas whereas small specialties.
Cheese and -- -- store it's not a political platform.
Now -- the as I understand this this footage this store its stock footage to campaign didn't shoot at somebody else should I shot an apparently.
Gave it to the care so that the campaign is that how you understand it.
And that's how I understand that I you know -- quite honestly I don't care if it was if its stock footage or any kind of footage.
I feel as though we should have been contacted.

That part of the ad wouldn't be a concern for my customers.

And I just want to make it clear that who moved my manager was misled.

Completely makes it.
And -- I'm just understand and it wasn't the DNC it for the Obama campaign that shot the video but an intermediary somebody else.
It's shot the video and did -- not -- from then -- to do that it mean that they -- they -- -- your store on the Obama campaign and -- that right.
No this was there and this was just it.
A general joke coming in the store saying I'm doing a survey on riot doors.
Do you mind if side and I have to make it clear that that is not one of my employees opening up that door that is and that isn't.
