Pharrell Williams released the phenomenal dance song “Happy” with a 24-hour music video in 2013. In this single shot music video, viewers are taken throughout the day in the life of Los Angeles residents. Locals and celebrities are filmed performing to the dancing beats of “Happy.”
This music video was definitely a worldwide hit not only for its unique 24-hour long performance, but also because it inspires people to create their own “Happy” music video. People gathered in cities on every continent and in workplaces from corporate to retail to showcase their dancing and video talents.
The staff and residents at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch, New Zealand did not want to miss the chance to show the world what they could do as a team. Combining the efforts of sixty talented people, they were able to create this incredibly fun and silly music video to present to their families.
Throughout the video, residents are dancing in the halls, activity areas, and on the grounds of the retirement village. From silly dance moves to cannonballs into a pool, the residents pull out all of the stops, all while featuring an older gentleman who has adorable dance moves complete with a fashionable hat!
Many of the staff of the retirement village join in at certain points of the music video. From construction workers dancing around the upkeep of the grounds to even a chef in the kitchen kneading dough, no one can keep from smiling, grooving and laughing. That’s the team spirit!
The most refreshing part of the whole music video is the fact that each person is smiling, goofing off, and fully performing for the camera. This unique campaign brings people together and surely makes the world a better place. Happiness is truly contagious! Watch this video and spread the fun!
