If this Harajuku-themed video for Pharrell’s ubiquitous earworm doesn’t put a smile to your face or a couple taps to your feet—one day before a four-day weekend—there just might be no helping you.
We’ve lost count of just how many times we’ve watched the original video for Pharrell’s “Happy,” and it has been just as much fun to see what other cities can do with the concept, originally shot in LA over eleven days. While smaller-scale versions may not have the same high production values and celebrity cameos, the “folks dancing in the street like nobody’s watching” vibe carries over perfectly.
So without any further ado, here’s a Harajuku take on “Happy,” featuring some of the trendy little neighborhood’s finest, shaking what their collective mamas gave them. And if you do find that you’ve had a bit too much ”Happy” in your life already, keep it in mind that even Pharrell has a sense of humor about the song’s incredible popularity.
Hope you all have a…GOOD weekend!
