If this video of retirees' lip-synching Pharrell's 'Happy' doesn't put a smile on your face, then you have a cold, cold heart made of stone.
A New Zealand retirement community was so inspired by the joyous, upbeat tune, they decided to recreate their own version. The project, which involved both the staff and residents, even features the Pharrell's infamous hat. The community released a statement, saying, "Sixty residents and staff at the Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch combined all their considerable talents to come up with this tribute, 80-odd years of happy. The residents wanted to show their children and grandchildren just what they're made of!"
Beyond being totally adorable, the video reminds us that just because they're older, doesn't mean these retirees have lost their sense of humor or zest for life!
