Before we left and went on our journey to reinvent the GFP, we posted this very cool video of people from around the world groovin’ to Pharrell William’s “Happy” song. This silly yet contagious song has somehow inspired people to get off their collectives asses and jump around their neighbourhoods wearing big happy smiles.
We’ve decided to put it back on – for eternity, or until the internet breaks.
Besides Pharrell’s ‘official’ version, hundreds of people in dozens of countries and cities across the planet have indulged us all with their own home-grown versions. People from Argentina, China, Russia, Kuwait... to places I didn’t know existed with names I can’t pronounce are all up and bouncing around the hood!
Every colour imaginable, every religion possible, young and old, straight, gay and in-between, rich and poor, in virtually every video – together – dancing and smiling… wow…who knew?
