Pharrell Williams Happy (El Paso)
Last November, Pharrell Williams’ music video for his hit single “Happy” became a viral sensation, nabbing more than 300 million views on YouTube and inspiring a wave of themed copycats. In late March, local Devin Cuevas weighed in with his own El Paso version. The video, featuring El Paso natives dancing and lip-syncing to the song, was a four-minute blast of the feels full of iconic backdrops such as The Tap, UTEP, Chico’s Tacos, Bronco Swap Meet, El Paso Street shops, the Plaza Theatre and the Fountains at Farah. Produced over two weeks, the upload garnered more than 95,000 views, boosted local pride and cinched the title of Best Local YouTube Video.
