Sad news coming out of Iran over the weekend. A group of three men and three unveiled women were singing and dancing in the streets of Tehran as part of a viral video of Pharrell's 'Happy', and the video was watched more than 150,000 times before those involved were sentenced to jail time and 91 lashes.

They were charged with "participation in the making of a vulgar clip" and "illegitimate relations between members" which got them six months suspended jail time (the director was given a year). Because it's a suspended sentence, the verdict won't be carried out unless something similar is committed in that same period of time.

The brother of one of the video's stars spoke to the Telegraph, saying "The IRIB's (Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting) action in showing the 'confession' of my sister and her friends (...) is just outrageous." He added, "apparently they first arrest people without any charge or civil right to defend themselves, then interrogate them and then make them confess and finally broadcast their show."
