Pharrell Williams streams 24 hours of "Happy" for International Day of Happiness

It seems like you can't turn on the radio today without hearing Pharrell Williams' hit song Happy. In fact, it will be stuck in my head the rest of the day after writing this story. Pharrell has teamed up with the United Nations foundation to promote the second International Day of Happiness reports Syracuse.com .

The promotion has 24 different hour long vides set to the track Happy by Pharrell. The official day was yesterday, but you can still check out the video if you are so inclined. The deal with the UN Foundation is part of the UN's resolution to recognize happiness ad a fundamental human goal.

The UN is calling for, "a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes... happiness and well-being of all peoples."

During the 24 hours the program was live, anyone could upload their video to go along with the song. Pharrell was choosing his favorites to share with others. You can hit up youtube and see the videos for yourself.

Some of them are rather poorly made, but what do you expect when you ask for homemade videos set to the tune. You get what you get, lots of dancing and stuff that looks happy. I just watched the Colorado Springs edition and people had to think that girl was insane dancing down the street. The poor guy in the jacket was awkward to watch. Several dancers end up dancing away down the street in that video.
