The six Iranian people who were arrested for recreating Pharrell Williams’ song “Happy” on YouTube were released from prison on Thursday . According to CNN news reports, Iranian police chief  Hossein Sajedinia ordered the arrests of the three men and three women for the “obscene video clip that offended the public morals and was released in cyberspace,”


Last week,  Reihane Taravati thanked viewers on her Facebook page and posted a picture of those who were also in the video on Instagram. Taravati captioned her picture “People of Tehran are happy! Watch and Share Our Happiness!,”. “Let the world hear us! we are happy and we deserve to be!”. One week later, she was arrested for what the Iranian government viewed as “vulgar”. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani seemed to think differently. On twitter he quoted one of his comments from June 2011, “#Happiness is our people’s right. We shouldn’t be too hard on behaviors caused by joy,” Yesterday, Reihane Tarvati wrote on her Instagram account “Hi I’m back,” and thanked Pharrell and “everyone who cared about us.”  The release of the dancers came after a day a social media campaign launching urged Iranian police to free them. Unfortunately, the director of the video was not released.
