"Happy" by Pharrell Williams is featured on Just Dance 2015, Just Dance Now, 舞力全开2015, and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancers

Happy coach 1 big.png

The classic dancer is a man wearing an amaranth purple colored hat, a pair of light blue sunglasses, a yellow sweatshirt with a big black smiley face on it, under that, an amaranth purple shirt with its end shown underneath the sweatshirt, a pair of dark aqua pants which match his dark aqua colored glove and lastly, a pair of amaranth purple shoes.

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 girl's 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 from C'mon makes a reappearance. However, he looks different this time. He is wearing a red/yellow headband, a radio around his neck, and red sneakers.

Background

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, a residential area and a pool. There are various backup dancers dancing along to the song (see above for background dancers).

Gold Moves

There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:

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

Community Remix

Happy is the first song to have a Community Remix. The full remix was shown at the Ubisoft live stream. Just Dance sent about 15 people the full choreography for the people to send to Just Dance so that his/her part gets featured.

Trivia

General

  • Happy is the third song by Pharrell Williams in the Just Dance series.
  • Happy was the first song to be confirmed for Just Dance 2015.
  • The second bridge and the final chorus of the song are removed in-game.
  • 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, and the one from the teasing picture of Happy read ?utm_campaign=dm_9Jun2014_jd2015_e3trackteasehappy; the end of this marker leaked the track.
  • Happy was used for the official Just Dance 2015 trailer.
  • Happy is one of the songs selected for the Just Dance 2015 World Cup.[3]
  • Files for an unused Party Master Mode can be found among data for Just Dance 2015.[4]

Classic

  • A few days prior to Just Dance 2015’s release, Happy was available on Just Dance Now for one week. This makes Happy the third routine in the history of Just Dance to appear in Just Dance Now before the launch of its game, after Movement is Happiness (Find Your Thing) and India Waale.
    • It is also the first song from Just Dance 2015 to be released in Just Dance Now, albeit not permanently.
      • However, it was removed after that short period. It was re-added nearly 8 months later, on April 17, 2015. This makes Happy the routine with the second-longest time gap between its removal from Just Dance Now and its re-release, the first being American Girl (which debuted on October 16, 2014 and returned on June 5, 2015).
  • The backup choir that appears in the bridge is inspired by some scenes in the music video.
  • The panda from C'mon and Timber appears in the background.
  • During the second verse, the left back-up dancer does not have painted legs, unlike his arms.
  • The background for the routine was used in the teaser trailer "#June9 - Just Dance".

[5]

  • On the PAL cover of Just Dance 2015, the coach’s shirt is shinier than in the actual gameplay.
  • The coach could be seen in the Beta icons of some cups in Dance Quests.
  • On June 15, 2016, Happy was free on Just Dance Now in commemoration of Smile Power Day.[6]
  • The coach’s jumper is worn in Natoo’s music video for Je sais pas danser.
  • A sticker of the coach can be unlocked in Just Dance 2020 by playing Talk three times.
  • The coach makes an appearance in the trailer for Just Dance Unlimited.
  • Happy’s coach is featured in the start screen of the August 2020 update of Just Dance Now.
  • Happy is featured in the Just Dance Now playlist "This Time for Africa!", despite it not being inspired by African culture.

Community Remix

  • Happy’s Community Remix is the only one that does not require an internet connection.
    • This is because it is built into the game disc.

VIP

  • Richy Jackson does mildly different moves than in the original routine. The ending pose differs, too.
    • However, the game uses the score detection files from the Classic routine, so players have to perform the correct moves to gain points in spite of Jackson’s mistakes.
