Everyone Gets “Happy”

posted by Nell Minow

I love it when a song and video inspires tributes that pop up all over YouTube.  And Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” an irresistible tune with a simple video of people dancing, has inspired people all over the world to do their own versions.

Isn’t it great to see so many happy people!  If you’ve made a “Happy” video or just have one you like that I missed, let me know.

    Here is one more video from the Milwaukee Brewers. Don’t know if you know about Hak the dog. He is in a snippet of the video. Hank wandered on to the field during practice in spring training. He was adopted by one of the Brewer officials and is the new mascot for the Brewers. He has a dog house out in the bleacher area too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyi677lwdnE

      Oh my goodness! I love that one! My dad is from Milwaukee and it is one of my favorite cities. Thanks so much for sharing.

        Glad you liked that. I wondered how long it took to do that video as it was done right after the season started. I was always under the impression your dad was born in Chicago. Once again I am mistaken about something. As a former FCC chairman I wonder how he feels about net neutrality.

Thanks to Indiewire for including me in their survey of critics about how important it is to watch a movie as it was filmed. If it was made on film stock, is it unfair to the artists' vision to watch a digital version? Here was my answer: [caption id="attachment_30587" align="alignright" widt
