Iranic - Iranians in "Happy" video not so happy anymore...

Iranian police arrest seven young men and women whose video of dancing to “Happy” by Pharrell Williams on Tehran rooftops went viral on YouTube, just days after President Hassan Rouhani said the country should embrace the Internet.

The seven dancers in the video were involved in the art world and were surprised by their unexpected hit.

The Iranian dancers were shown confessing that they ”were tricked” on state television.
And police warn young people of doing something similar because they will be "caught and dealt with".

Before the video was taken down from youtube:

The Art Director of the video, Reihane Taravati wants the world to know that Iranians are happy people too. "People of Tehran are happy! Watch and Share Our Happiness! Let the world hear us! We are happy and we deserve to be! Iranians love happiness. Tehran is a lovely city." Taravati adds, "you can still find happiness in Iran."

In the past two weeks, they've had over 100,000 hits on YouTube. With every click comes a greater understanding of different cultures and acceptance that people all over the world share the universal goal to be happy.
