As a Mystery Of The Music challenge this morning (Weekday Warmups 825am contest). I asked listeners to guess how many times Pharrell appears in the original music video of the song “Happy”. The version most of us have seen is an Edit (about 4 mins 7 sec). The original release is the worlds first ever “24 Hour Music Video”. This video took 11 days, average of 8 miles a day walking around the streets of L.A to film. There are 400 characters/celebrity appearances. The song repeats 360 times. Pharrell appears 24 times (nice going winner Gale of Renton!) You can watch it here and skim the 24 hour clock to watch the many people and celebrities. -Mark Christopher
