After producing two of the summer's biggest hits of 2013, "Blurred Lines" and "Get Lucky", composer, hit-maker, fashion icon, and super producer Pharrell Williams follows up with a historic and cinematic 24 hour video,"Happy".
Just when you think at 40 years old, although his looks suggest he isn't a day older than 25, with as much success that most can only dream of, Pharrell would be at near retirement stage; Think again. One half of the production mastermind-duo, The Neptunes, Williams conjures the spirits of Michael Jackson and Spike Jonze and creates the first and never before done 24 hour music video.
Williams uploaded an abbreviated version of the video to his YouTube site. The longer version features a cast of characters walking around Los Angeles as the song plays in the background on a loop. Some of the special guests include Jimmy Kimmel, Jamie Foxx, Tyler the Creator and Steve Carell.
The interface for the video, found on the website 24hoursofhappy.com, sets the clip at a time corresponding to the local time of the viewer, with the ability to fast-forward, rewind and skip around to different times of the day.
"Happy" comes from the film Despicable Me 2, for which Pharrell helped create the soundtrack.
