Hollywood hottie Meagan Fox makes video protesting California education budget cuts

California -

(NBC) - Education funding has never been a sexy issue, but then came this video from FunnyorDie.com

Megan Fox, named Sexiest Woman Alive by every issue of every magazine ever published, and former "Beverly Hills 90210" actor Brian Austin Green star with a classroom of children in a video called "Hot for Teacher."

It was created to bring attention to the state's school budget cuts. The video shows Fox happening upon a troubled classroom of children who have an impressive grasp of public education funding.

During Fox's visit, a representative from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office enters with children tucked under each arm.

"Wait, there's no more room in here," Fox explains as the children are placed among their new classmates.

"You know, when Gov. Schwarzenegger was a boy growing up in war-torn Austria, he didn't have a desk either," the man in a suit responds. "He went on to win the Mr. Olympia title... eight times. Think about that."

Other facts that might not actually be facts or half-truths: "Let's not forget that when Gov. Schwarzenegger was a boy, he used to collect all the garbage in his village and burn it to keep his family warm during the cold Austrian winters."

"He also cut a microchip out of the back of his own head -- with no anesthesia."

At the end of the video, Fox and Green urge us to "call, write and annoy the governor until he cries for his mommy."

Early Thursday, the video had 385,900 views, including the governor's spokesman. He headed straight to Twitter.

"David Silver's numbers are wrong," Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear tweeted Wednesday, referring to the character played by Green on "90210." "Gov budget maintains ed $ at current level: $50B of state's $85 B budget."

In the video, Fox says more than $17 billion has been cut from state educational programs over the past two years. Green says the "terminators in Sacramento" plan to cut another $2.5 billion.

What does State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O'Connell say? Last month, he said budget cuts have caused a 17 percent jump in the number of school districts facing financial uncertainty.
