Nov. 26 (UPI) -- A video of a speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani during his August 3 inauguration has been made into a music video.
Posted to YouTube yesterday, the black and white music video shows clips of Iranian performers of various ages reciting parts of his speech as a song plays in the background.
The music video can be played simultaneously with another YouTube video of Rouhani speaking at his inauguration, and the tracks line up nicely.
Washington Post Tehran correspondent Jason Rezaian translated some of the Farsi-language inauguration speech that is used in the music video, which Washington Post writer Max Fisher compared to Barack Obama's "Yes, We Can" 2008 stump speech-turned music video.
