The video for the Pharrell Williams Happy song had the artist team up with a duo of french directors ‘We Are From LA’ and has created the world’s first 24 hour long music video in light of Pharrell’s song from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack ‘Happy,’ naming it, ‘24 Hours of Happy’. The shots contain 360 sequences entirely filmed in Los Angeles.
The groovy music video involves the seemingly ageless Pharrell Williams dancing and prancing around the city, along with cameos featuring Magic Johnson, Jimmy Kimmel, Odd Future and Steve Carell lip-syncing along to the song.
After being named ‘Hitmaker of the Year’ by GQ magazine, the producer says to GQ that the major reason of his success in making Number One hits was the need of breaking away from the everyday grind and stress of all the bad things in the world.
“Both songs are for people who need a break, there’s a lot of f*cked-up travesty in the world. Sometimes you just need a Hallmark card. Sometimes you just need to shake your ass,” says Pharrell on his hit singles.
And the 24 hour long music video ‘Happy’ is no different.
