This video produced by new media creator Anas Hamra puts exuberant scenes of Palestinians in Gaza dancing to the Pharell song “Happy.”
Pharrell Williams is an American musician whose career started in the early 1990s. When the “Happy” single was released, the web site 24hoursofhappy.com originated the meme of various people dancing to the song. Here’s the official video.
People have repeated it in Bermuda, Paris, Dublin, Hamburg, Jamaica, Howard University in Washington, DC, and pretty much anywhere else you can name.
Another interesting version features people identified as “British Muslims.”
It’s a lot of fun.
