Si, podem

El cantant dels Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am, ha agafat el "Yes we can" speech que Barack Obama va pronunciar després de guanyar el caucus a Carolina del Sud i l'ha convertit en una cançó-himne-anunci-de-campanya brutal. Al vídeo (que he descobert aquí), hi apareixen unes quantes celebritats però jo, de cara, només identifico l'Scarlett Johansson i la Kate Walsh, la d'Anatomia de Grey. També hi surten Jesse Dylan, Tatyana Ali, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Adam Rodriquez, Kelly Hu, Adam Rodriquez, Amber Valetta, Eric Balfour, Aisha Tyler, Nicole Scherzinger i Nick Cannon.

Aquí la lletra de la cançó, per si la voleu anar cantant avui que és el SuperDimarts:

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can.

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

Yes. We. Can.

Tampoc tenim gaires polítics capaços de fer discursos tan bons oi?

És cert, però a més les iniciatives per a fer vídeos diguem que estan en un altre nivell...
