The video was produced by a foreign film production company, Canada’s Sinking Ship Entertainment. The production cost remains unknown.
Children who took part in the event appeared to be delighted to be there. They were child actors who tried out to be in the videos, California station KSBW reported.
Monterey resident Trevor Bernardino, 13, told the station he was a space enthusiast who tried out for the role – only to be gobsmacked when he learned he would be traveling to Washington, DC to take part in the video. He tried out by sending in a monologue and the providing three questions he would ask a world leader.
‘Then after that, like a week later my agent called me and was like ‘Hey Trevor you booked it,” he said.
He was one of five teens who participated. He was joined by Derrick Brooks II, another child actor, Emily Kim, likewise a child actor, Zhoriel Tapo, a child actor and aspiring journalist who has interviewed former First Lady Michell Obama, and Sydney Schmooke.
NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough took part from the International Space Station.
Harris tweeted out the video on October 7.
