Maroon 5 star Adam Levine and actor Jake Gyllenhaal have teamed up with US comedian Andy Samberg to poke fun at Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a hilarious new video.
Saturday Night Live regular Samberg, who recorded cult favourite Dick In A Box with Justin Timberlake, has penned a quirky love song to the Iranian President, called I Ran – and Levine has joined him for the chorus.
The pair premiered the quirky promo, which suggests Ahmadinejad is Samberg’s gay lover, on SNL at the weekend.
The video also features Gyllenhaal – because Samberg declared the Brokeback Mountain star looks like the Iranian leader.
In the song, Samberg sings: “I know you say that there are no gays in Iran, but you’re in New York now, baby!”
The video comes after President Ahmadinejad gave a controversial speech at Columbia University last week, in which he made the claim: “In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.”
