Backup Dancers

The two males that appear in the background towards the start of the song are wearing boxes on their heads. They are blue and highly detailed. They are wearing jackets.They look similar to Video Killed the Radio Star.

There are also two girls wearing pink jackets and have pineapples on their shirts. One of the girls hair is poofy and resembles the Ghostbusters sweat version. The other one looks similar to American Girl and Mr.Saxobeat, in style of hair.

The panda makes a reappearance, however he looks different this time. He is wearing a red/yellow headband, a radio around his neck, and red sneakers.

The first backup dancer is Cain, as seen in the behind the scenes video. The second is Aurélie Sériné. The third is Alexis, and the fourth is Shirley. Then, in the left, Alexis appears again, and, at the right, Cain appears again.

Background

Classic

The background consists of real life shots (akin to Gentleman) with some animated effects. The real life shots are mostly a school hallway, the underneath of a concrete bridge, and residential area and a pool. There are various backup dancers dancing along to the song (see above for background dancers).

Sing Along

The Sing Along background is the same as Starships’ Charleston Mode's background, aside from two microphones which have been planted for the dancers.

Gold Moves

The Classic routine has 3 Gold Moves, all of which are the same.

Classic

All: Clap once with both of your hands while walking to the left.

Sing Along

There are 3 Gold Moves for P1, and 2 Gold Moves for P2 in the Sing Along routine.

Gold Moves 1 and 2 (P1): Straighten your shirt.

Trivia

  • The background was used in the teaser trailer "#June9 - Just Dance".
  • This song was used for the official trailer.
  • This was the first song to be confirmed for Just Dance 2015.
  • This is one of the several songs to have multiple dancers in the background not copying the main dancer.
    • This might be a reference to the music video, where over 400 dancers dance to the song, one by one.
  • The songs features heavy zooms and 3D views of the dancer. The other two songs in the series to have similar zooms are I Love It and You, Me, and the Beat.
  • The dancer is meant to look like Pharrell Williams. Also, a similar (or maybe the same) dancer is in Blurred Lines, which is a song that's also partially made by Pharrell.
  • The disco ball dancer's outfit wears the same outfit as P1 from Get Lucky, the only difference it is pink instead of gold.
  • This is the third song by Pharrell Williams in the Just Dance series, the first and second were his features in Blurred Lines and Get Lucky.
    • This is the only song by Pharell Williams where he sings solo.
  • The background for the Sing-Along is the same as Starships (Charleston).
  • By a vote to see what new gameplay would be unveiled, this song assumingly came second to I Love It's guard dance.
  • The background of the classic version has possibly the most animated effects in the whole series.
  • This song is shortened by 1 minute and 9 seconds.
  • In the Sing-Along routine, unlike other trios, the lead dancer is the left dancer, and the backup dancers are the middle and right ones.
    • Happy is the only trio to behave like this.
  • On the PAL cover, the dancer's shirt is shinier than in the game.
  • The backup choir is inspired from some scenes in the music video.
  • Ubisoft used to tease a game before its confirmation by pictures being shadows of dancers, in which a link was added with them. Clicking the link would redirect to the official Just Dance game site. Every link had a marker; the link from the teasing picture of this song had this one: ?utm_campaign=dm_9Jun2014_jd2015_e3trackteasehappy; the end of this marker made this song leaked.
  • The panda from C'mon and Timber appears in the background.
  • Alexinho Mougelle, Aurélie Sériné, Shirley Henault and Cain Kitsais are the background dancers.
  • Céline Rotsen created this choreography.
  • The sing along is the third routine in which the lead dancer has more gold moves, the first being the on stage mode of #thatPOWER, and the second being The Fox.
    • It's the second alternate mode that does this.
  • The choreography is performed by Jerky Jessy.
  • For some reason, the legs of one of the backup dancers who resembles Video Killed the Radio Star are not painted, unlike his arms.
  • A sweater for Animal Crossing: New Leaf called Happy Shirt was inspired by this song; it is one of the many JD outfits made by Wesley Enriquez.
  • The track has a VIP consisting of Richy Jackson. In the VIP, Richy does mildly different moves than in the original routine. He even does the wrong ending pose.
  • Happy’s Community Remix is the only one that does not require internet connection.
    • This is because it's built into the game's disc.
  • A few days prior to Just Dance 2015's release, the song was available on Just Dance Now for one week. It is the second song in the game series's history of appearing in Just Dance Now before launch, the first being Movement is Happiness. However, it got removed after that. It was re-added nearly 8 months later on April 17th, 2015.
    • This makes Happy the song with the longest time gap between its removal from Just Dance Now and its re-release.
  • This is one of the songs selected for the Just Dance 2015 World Cup.[1]
  • In a Beta picture, the backup choir singers are seen as yellow silhouettes, and a pictogram from Good Feeling is accidentally featured.
  • The dancer appeared in the beta icons of some cups in Dance Quest.[2]
