It seems fun in a KarmaTube kind of way that the Oscar-nominated song from a movie about a bad guy (Despicable Me 2) actually turns out to be something positive. And not just positive but absolutely jivin’. Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is an anthem to sharing your light and letting your energy burst through your seams. And it’s fast becoming a movement, pun intended. Watch this video that defies you to stay still or glum for more than a moment.

    What inspired you about this video Happiness is a choice that we all can make, despite the circumstances of life. It is ours for embracing!

  • Iman

    It's wonderful and it tells a lot about the philosophy of happiness in simple words. Happiness emerges out of the darkest moments.

  • Ben

    the fact that Williams is a fur wearer is very disappointing. I am afraid Mr Williams is not setting a very good example if he buys clothes associated with suffering.

  • Lady Amazon Brown

  • shawn

    need to be HAPPY

  • SaraCsit

    There is a reason why dance is used as therapy. Get out of your chair, close your eyes and let the music move you. Dance your emotions, whether they are sad, mad, or happy. I guarantee, if you give yourself the 5 minutes of this song and dance, you will feel different, in a good way! Do it!!!

  • Arlene

    It makes one feel happy just by listening

  • Shamin

    Such an upbeat sound and words are so good. Video is so clean and fun to watch - the other singers need to take note. I just wanted to watch and watch. Unlike the flimsy stuff you see elsewhere. Love yaaaaa - came home at 11.30 and just starting to have dinner - computer is miles away - yaaa dinner can wait.

  • ashok

  • guy

  • monte hannah

    Awesome video; going to share with my son :-)

  • Lori

    Was on my long way home from work, very tired, and this tune came on the radio during my last few miles--instantly, I was uplifted and energized and grateful that it found me at that moment and am reminded now that happiness is just a thought away! Thanks Pharrell!!

  • Ruth

    I love the beat! I can't sit still when I hear it! I'm sitting here on oxygen, and the beat is so infectious that I moved around sitting on my kitchen stool as if I didn't have a care in the world. I moved around so joyfully and more than I have in a long time. I moved around in such a joyful way that it took over me. I felt more alive and joyful in those few minutes listening to the music and watching the video and I have been quite a while. It felt so good!!!!!!

  • Carolyn

    Love the beat, the words, visuals....everything. Thank you....I needed this.

  • lonnie

    love the movements, how can you listen and not rock!!!

  • Joy

    The beat. The message. Getting me out of my chair & dancing along. My endorphins are singing along now. Thank you Karma Tube. Thank you Pharnell.

  • Lynn

    Joy and happiness are good things. this video makes me happy...why be a downer and call it propaganda? Can't be serious all the time! Sheesh.

  • Kauni

    There is much too much to be aware of...happiness is not in that equation....I feel this is a convenient distraction...propaganda....

  • Tammi

    This song and video is just plain happy and positive. Much of the music these days is negative, degrading, raunchy, depressing, etc. I fell in love with the song the first time I listened to it. Obviously people WANT happy songs, since this is number one on the charts.

  • Terri

    Joyce Nicholson...the 24 hour version of the "Happy" video does feature seniors. One of my favorite segments is three white haired ladies dancing down the sidewalk. One of the ladies bops her friend in the butt and they look like they are having such fun. And--yes--they DO dance good!

  • Marsha Nelson,Ph.D.

    This is WHAT I AM talking about!! Get happy.

  • Fran

    Did you see the version of Because I'm Happy that was made with survivors of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. An amazing tribute to the human spirit. see: www.yesmagazine.org/happiness/typhoon-haiyan-survivors-dance-to-pharrell-williams2014and-they-are-incredible

  • Joe

    Amazing Video...hooray!!! Its our truest nature and our birthright no matter where we come from or where we have been. Its only one question away...and...I choose this! Thank You Pharrell Williams you are light and love!!!

  • Joyce Nicholson

    It was good, but you left out old people!!! We elders can be happy, too! And even dance...

  • Robert Golden

    What I loved about this video is that it SHOWED that happiness is available to EVERYONE! And we are all together in creating this HAPPINESS PROJECT on Earth!

  • Lisa "BellaForStar" Perez

    The submissions from countries at war or under oppressive governments where those participating could be killed for dancing in public. #HAPPYDAY can't be stopped because the soul responds to freedom. Goodness always prevails. Blessings to those who risked their lives to be HAPPY.

  • Vicky

    You can't help but want to dance when you listen to this!

  • Karen

    Because: (1) it's how happy music makes me feel. I want to dance and clap and sing. (2) When I'm stressed or having a bad day, I can play this song and it grounds me. Reminds me what I'm stressing about is not the truth in my life, but happiness is. (3) When "Flashdancer" was popular, I used to put on my leotards, walkman, and leg warmers to dance around the neighborhood and park. (4) Because Happiness Is My Truth. (5) Because I know what Happiness is to Me. (6) The video shows normal, every day people from all walks of life dancing, singing, clapping and being happy during various activites, like working! No reason we can't incorporate dance and song into the work we do. (6) It's not perfect models with perfect faces and bodies. (7) It shows what links us all ... happiness in our souls and we can only give it away. It can't be taken away from us. No one can stop us from dancing, singing, or clapping. :)

  • Whitney

    This is so happy and just makes me want to get up, smile and dance! Thank you Pharrell Williams for sharing this happiness with all of us...

  • Sarah

    This is what we really need!!!

  • Kari

    I learned to sign this wonderful, toe tapping, exciting song for my hearing friends!!!

  • Vicki

    It is such a wonderful universal message. We can all suddenly feel what happiness is through the magic of music. It makes me smile and get up and move each time I watch it!

  • mbj

    The diversity of the human race is beautiful and happiness is the language of us all!!!!! I really am inspired by this song. LOVE it...It makes me HAPPY!

  • Ernest Newsum

    It reached the inner core of my spirituality. As a Unitarian Universalist it expresses all the views of my faith; which is essentially that life is a journey.

  • Eileen McDargh

    Energy that comes from joy in the moment. THAT's what matters!!!! Now I want him to go perform this at assisted living centers!

  • Sherry

    I love how everyone just does their own thing and moves. Love it! I could listen to this song every minute. It should have won the oscar.

  • Christin

    love love love :) We are so fortunate to be here!

  • lili

  • Fred Gregson Sr

    Watching people of every shape and size feel the happiness of just being happy right now! I know that every single person was dealing with personal angst and problems yet, they all found a way to try and give happy to us all! I start every day listening to this ssong and trying to give happy away like it was a gift. Because it is a priceless gift!! Thanks Pharell and all those great dancers!!

  • Lisa

    I played this video for my middle school students and their smiles were priceless! It made them dance!

  • Anjali

    There's something about this video that just makes me smile all day long. It has become a family event where we will just put on the music and dance to it- i wanted to make mornings good for my son before he went to school -so we would put on the music and dance before we left the house - it left a good feeling for both of us. My cousin had a brilliant idea for us as a family to make a video on this song - we are spread out all over the world - from paris, to barcelona, to NY/NJ - each of us videotaped outselves dancing to the song and we made a home video out of it - a great bonding moment and a wonderful memories.

  • Doug

    Be happy...share the feeling...smile at someone...build community! A great tune for any day! Happy UN day of happy!

  • Tom

    A reminder that most of the world is beautiful and filled with joy. It's the bad news we receive every day that dominates. Let's change our news.

  • Becky

    I love this song - it makes me very happy! Such fun! How could anyone not be happy after seeing this?
