Cotonou Recreates Pharrell's 'Happy' Video

Benin takes on Pharrell Williams' "Happy" video with "Happy (We Are Happy We Are From Cotonou)."


Earlier today we caught wind of a Beninese take on Pharrell Williams' 24 hour-long dose of "Happy." In what may go down as Cotonou's next (or first?) viral video, director Stéphane Brabant enlisted over a hundred smiling folks in a nod to the original search for Los Angeles' good vibes. Watch "Happy (We are happy from Cotonou)" below.
