Retirement Community Remakes Pharrell Williams's "Happy"

(Video Link)

And it's completely charming!

This is the Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch, New Zealand. 60 residents and members of the staff made this shot-by-shot remake of the original music video by Pharrell Williams. They made it to show their friends and family that they're happy. The Daily Mail describes the dapper fellow who plays Williams:

The star of the video, complete with a Pharrell-esque smart white shirt, bow tie and iconic hat, is 79-year-old former engineer Alister Leckie who Mr King said 'had never done anything like that before, and absolutely loved it'.

The residents stay in shape with regular exercise and flashmobbing, so they were up for the demands of the video.
