CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The latest viral version of Pharell's "Happy" is aimed at breaking down stereotypes.

The video, created by 22-year-old Rayyan Najeeb, features young Muslims dancing around a number of Chicago sites.

Najeeb told the Sun-Times he wanted to fight the stereotype that Muslims are angry and miserable, while showing the diversity of Chicago's Muslim community.

So far, the video has more than 50,000 views and a range of opinions. A lot of people love it, but some critics say the scenes of women dancing are sinful.
