London, Jul. 07 – A popular comedy clip of Iran’s leaders, produced by opposition satellite television channel Simay-e Azadi, has been viewed more than 1.2 million times on the social video sharing channel YouTube.

The clip, which shows top figures in the theocratic regime dancing to comic verses, has also been widely circulated by Iranians through email.

The song, in Farsi, narrates the multitude of political and social crises gripping the regime.

Simay-e Azadi (iranntv.com), which has produced a series of similar comic skits, reportedly has a wide following in Iran.

This and other comedy clips by the Iranian opposition have infuriated the authorities and proved very popular in Iran.

Last November, the semi-official news agency ISNA quoted, Ali Darabi, Deputy Director of the State-run TV and Radio, as saying, "40 percent of Iranians are now tuning in to watch satellite TV channels… The rate of satellite viewership in this society is extremely troubling".

Darabi accused media outlets such as Simay-e Azadi of penetrating Iranian households and causing "family break ups".
