(UPI) -- Comedian Hisham Fageeh mocked Saudi Arabia's ban of female drivers in a Bob Marley inspired video.

In the clip, Fageeh adapts Marley's No Woman No Cry into No Woman No Drive. He sings the track without instruments recreating the beat of the song a capella.

The comedian's rendition of the offers exaggerated versions of the arguments given by backers of the ban including the idea that ovaries are safer in the back seat and that women are better off staying at home so they can cook.

Subtitles in both English and Arabic are provided throughout the song. The clip has received over 5 million views since it was uploaded on YouTube Tuesday.
