Will.i.am "Yes We Can" Video - WOW

I was told about this video that The Black Eyed Pea's Will.i.am produced... so I jumped all over the Web to look up information about the people in the video... (which I have links to who they are at the end.). I originally found it on dipdive.com/, but I also found information on youtube.com, imdb.com, and a variety of places...

I share.


Produced by the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and directed by Jesse Dylan, Bob Dylan's son.

Yes, We Can! - Si, Se Puede!

Song & video, featuring a star cast, by Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. Inspired by Barack Obama's 'Yes We Can' speech.




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.

Great work tracking those people down. The wiki has a good list, too.

Scarlett Johanssen is dreamy but the singer with the pirate tattoo and the full lips... *swoon* Now I know who she is and how to find more of her gorgeous voice. Thank you!

That is an excellent question. Upon review.. I don't see him either. But... I'm not sure what he looks like these days. There's a person I don't recognize towards the end of the video... with no goatee... that just may be him.

Finn said...
