Happy: we didn't make this!

Don't miss the nuance of the colon: the video is called Happy, and we didn't film or edit it. Rowan, however, did lend her smiling face and improvisational dance skills to the project. Internet people will probably have heard about Happy, the song from Despicable Me 2 by Pharrell Williams. You can watch the original version on the IamOTHER Youtube channel. If that's not enough for you there is 24 hour version, split into hour-long movies on the same channel. It's a genius way to prove a viral concept doesn't have to be short and sweet.

Far from the streets of LA, this dance response comes from the streets of historic Jajce, in Central Bosnia. The project was organised by volunteers at the Omladinski Centar, the local youth centre in town. The video was uploaded yesterday and as I'm writing this has just under two thousand views. That's good going. Judging by the number of people we're seeing share it on Facebook that's just the beginning. Enjoy the video. It shows off some of the prettier parts of town and includes a few decent dance moves. Spare a thought for Rowan who is not the biggest fan of appearing on film. But most of all, as the song says: clap along if you know what happiness means to you. We hope you do!
