Pharrell has made the world's first ever 24 hour music video of his popular song "Happy," releasing a new video every day for each hour. Every video opens with Pharrell singing the four minute song and from there, 400 Los Angelinos take over. The first video was put up on YouTube November 22 for the 12:00 AM hour and featured Pharrell and others dancing at a gas station and the streets of LA. Celebrities like Magic Johnson, Steve Carrell, Kelly Osbourne and Jamie Foxx make appearances, as well as the minions from Despicable Me, whose soundtrack featured the song.
Pharrell's YouTube page titled "i am OTHER" is "dedicated to Thinkers, Innovators, and Outcasts," and encourages people to be unique, be themselves, and be freaks. Of the 10, hour-long videos there is a range of people from young to old, many of whom seem like professional dancers (although definitely not all) with some key outfit choices.
Here are some of the best sequences from the hours he's shared thus far:
The chick who isn't afraid to crawl on a dirtied gas station floor at minute 24.
The intense moves by a sweaty white guy at minute 4, and Kelly Osbourne's purple hair at minute 28.
The flamboyant divo boy at minute 8.
The funky street dancing duo at minute 8.
Business man breaking it down at minute 8.
Minions running down road at minute 32 followed by Magic Johnson letting loose in his trophy room at minute 36.

Flavor Flav inspired clock-wearing guy at minute 4 and female dancer with the best gypsy pants at minute 56.
The crazy, big-haired woman at minute 4 and awesome moves by a groovy woman at minute 12.
Tiny, hipster break-dancing boy at minute 48 followed by the cutest little girl at minute 52.
Stay tuned as we'll be following up when Pharrell posts additional chapters.
