Barack Obama’s final Democratic National Convention speech as a sitting president was introduced with a little help from Hollywood.

A glossy, 10-minute video narrated by Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston highlighted Obama’s achievements and challenges over his seven-and-a-half-years as president, praising the policies he championed, like the Affordable Care Act, and recalling more somber moments, like his emotional press conference following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

The short film was directed by An Inconvenient Truth helmer Davis Guggenheim, and featured comments from former Obama staffers including adviser David Axelrod and speechwriter Jon Favreau.

After the featurette, Obama took to the Wells Fargo Stage in Philadelphia to speak in support of Hillary Clinton, his former Secretary of State and the Democratic nominee for President.
