Why is this video offending people?

Pharrell Williams launched a Happy Day movement, to which people are responding with their own videos set to his now overplayed hit "Happy."

One of those videos, Happy British Muslims! is stirring the pot for some people. It shows Muslims of all ages dancing to the hit song.

The group that produced the video said on its blog that it received tons of raw footage of people dancing, smiling, and just plain having a good time.

It says:

We Brits have a bad rep for being a bit stiff, but this video proves otherwise. We are HAPPY. We are eclectic. We are cosmopolitan. Diverse. Creative. Fun. Outgoing. And everything you can think of.

This video is to show the world despite the negative press, stereotypes and discrimination we are burdened with we should respond with smiles and joy, not anger.

What do you think? Does this video offend you?
