The beautiful weather, stunning architecture and gorgeous natural landscapes are just a few of the reasons why visitors and locals alike are always smiling in Los Angeles. And that joy has now been captured in Happy, a catchy single from Pharrell Williams. The singer, rapper and producer has created a unique 24-hour video to go with the song, featured on 24 Hours of Happy, the interactive website at

In the expanded version of Happy, you can click and move a 24-hour clock and watch hundreds of Angelenos singing and dancing to Pharrell’s song throughout the city, from Downtown to Hollywood, Silver Lake, Beverly Hills and Runyon Canyon. Pharrell makes an appearance at the top of each hour, while other familiar faces include Jamie Foxx, Steve Carrell, Jimmy Kimmel and Magic Johnson, who takes us on a tour of his estate that ends up in his trophy room.

Countless music videos have been filmed in Los Angeles, but none of them will truly make your day like Happy.
