So Pharrell Williams’ recent release ‘ Happy ‘ is now being copied by folks around the world for its appearance of spontaneity and the ordinary in cities around the world. What began in L.A. is now being shown up with films of dancers all around the world in major cities. A recent export from Paris myself from the last almost 2 years of my life, I appreciated the ability of this video in the city of light to inspire happiness from Trocadero, La Tour Eiffel, Oberkampf, Les Champs Élysées, and Le Louvre among others. The reason I really like this is not only because it captures the beauty of the city, but reveals that the dancers are just ordinary people who happen to know how to move their feet.
Additional links are below, with additional mirror images of Pharrell’s positive vibes, with a soft spot for Antananarivo, Madagascar…
