David Keyes, the executive director of Advancing Human Rights, set out to punk the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, on his recent trip to New York City. Watch here:
Keyes sought to track down Zarif and offer him congratulatory balloons. He also apparently wanted to have an ice cream party with the top Iranian diplomat. "Free ice cream, free Iran's political prisoners," random people on the streets of New York City say into the camera.
Zarif's accomplishment? Iran has hanged 1,000 people in the last year in a half.
Keyes's aim is to bring attention to what's going on in Iran.
