6 Iranians arrested for making fan video of 'Happy'

Six Iranians are behind bars after they appeared in a fan video set to Pharrell Williams' hit song "Happy."

The clip garnered more than 50,000 views on YouTube and shows three men and three women - not wearing veils - dancing through the rooftops, living rooms and streets of Tehran.

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," CNN reports.

A subtitled edition of the TV clip, posted on YouTube, identified those arrested as "actors" who claimed they were tricked into making the video for an audition.

One of the women who took part in the video, entitled "Happy we are from Tehran," said they made it to "tell the world that Iran is a better place than what they think it is."

Pharrell Williams, whose song was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year, denounced the arrests.

"It is beyond sad that these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness," the singer wrote on his Facebook page.

And he's not the only one unhappy about the arrests. The twitter hashtag #freehappyiranians has gone viral.

The original video has since been made private, but copies have been uploaded on YouTube by others who are demanding that the six arrested participants be released.

Sandra Bullock surprises grads with speech: Don't pick your nose

If you could go back to talk to your younger self, what would you say?

Sandra Bullock answered that question for graduating students during a surprise speech at Warren Easton Charter High School in New Orleans.

She kept it short and sweet, offering tips like "eat something green every day," "do not pick your nose in public," and "when someone who cares about you hugs you, hug them back with two arms.

The Oscar-winning actress took the school under her wing after it was damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. She's donated money to help fund band uniforms, athletic equipment, scholarships and even a health clinic at the school.

She adopted her son from New Orleans in 2010 and owns a home in the city's Garden District.
