As heard from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, “Happy” has taken the Billboard charts by storm with staying at the number one spot for two weeks in a row and staying on the Billboard charts for 13 consecutive weeks. The video for Pharrell Williams’ upbeat foot tapper is set in a number of places as the video captures the happiness and awkward dancing of a variety of random people. The video also shows glimpse from the movie that made the song possible, “Despicable Me 2”. Even though the video shows Williams in that damn hat he wore to an award show and has gotten grief from it ever since, the video has a positive vibe and almost always wants me to dance in the library when it comes on my Pandora “Top Hits” station. Twerk team, laugh, dance, and be happy.
