Ofogh TV (Iran) aired a music video titled "The Great Satan" on November 4, 2021, in honor of the anniversary of the 1979 student takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. The video included a chorus of teen boys in military fatigues, singing: "Every act of evil and deceit is imprinted in America's essence [...] if you want to know [America's] essence, see the JCPOA."

Choir: "America's injustice has been revealed again at this period of time. This is another lesson for those who do not believe. See this recurring injustice. See the hand of the oppressor. See again the violation of the promise by the Great Satan."

Singer 1: "It operates like Satan, violating so many promises. It employs all forms of manipulation and deceit against Mankind. It exports nothing but evil, it brings along death and danger. Every act of evil and deceit is imprinted in America's essence."

Singer 2: "Know this infamous [America]. Know this ill-fated [America]. If you want to know [America's] essence, see the JCPOA. Its name is synonymous with shame. It started a war with an entire nation. The world has been filled with its deceit, and it has become the epitome of deceit."
