Happy music video


We’re two months into 2014, and Pharrell Williams' Oscar-nominated hit song “Happy” is helping the team at The Root have the best year ever! We’re so happy, in fact, that we want to share it with the world, and we want the world to share it with us!

So send us your vids in tune with Pharrell’s song “Happy” for one giant worldwide viral video. You can dance in the streets, jump for joy in your cubicles or get out there and do anything that comes to mind! The clips that we select will be a part of a very special celebration next week, where we’ll combine all of our happiness into something really special.

Send your videos to Have fun!
