6 Iranians Arrested for Making Fan Video of ‘Happy’

Apparently, dancing to a song about happiness in Iran can get you arrested.
Six Iranians are behind bars after they appeared in a fan video set to Pharrell Williams'”Happy”.
Tehran Police Chief Hossein Sajedinia ordered the arrests of the three men and three women because they helped make an “obscene video clip that offended the public morals and was released in cyberspace,” the Iranian Students’ News Agency reported Wednesday.

Pharrell denounced the arrests and stated on his facebook page, “It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness”.
