Pharrell video filmed in Northeast Los Angeles neighborhoods

Here's a little morning pick-me-up: Pharrell William's "Happy" music video. Shot all over Los Angeles, you'll recognize some spots in Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Highland Park, Silver Lake, Downtown, Echo Park, and more! Check out the video below:

Now, this is just an excerpt - the full video is actually 24 hours long. There was no choreographer or costume designer, and in total the video included 360 people with only one take each, and shot over the course of 11 days. While the music video came out late last year (the song is on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack), surely "whenever and wherever you are, you can be happy."
