How Does Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ No-Music Music Video Make You Feel?


Unofficial studies show that Pharrell’s “Happy” has made the world a happier place. But what happens when one person decides to remove the instrumental backing? Is there a loss of warm, fuzzy feeling? YouTube user House of Halo stripped away the bouncy melody and all that was left was a bunch of seemingly happy people looking crazy. One girl decided to ditch the “Happy” song altogether and rock out to Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” instead. It’s Pharrell-featured and produced, so I guess it counts. But how does this no-music music video make you feel? While Gawker says it’s “significantly less happy” and HuffPo says it’s “still pretty happy,” we can’t help but feel like something is (obviously) missing. Hit play and sound off in the comments below.
