"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

Classic

Happy coach 1 big

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.

Sing Along

P1

P1 is the lead dancer. His outfit is mainly black - he has a black jacket with a pocket, black pants and gray shoes. His shirt is white and he has a black tie.

P2/P3

P2 and P3 are the backup dancer. They are male. They have a short-sleeved white shirt, black bowtie and buttoned gray vest. They also wear black pants with gray sneakers. P2 is clean-shaven whereas P3 has a beard.


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, a 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

Classic

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

All Gold Moves: 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 and P3 (both of which are the same) in the Sing Along routine:

Gold Moves 1 and 2 (P1): Straighten your shirt.
Gold Move 3 (P1): Point to the sky.
Both Gold Moves (P2 and P3): Push away.

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

  • Happy is the third song by Pharrell Williams in the Just Dance series.
  • The background for the routine was used in the teaser trailer "#June9 - Just Dance".
  • Happy was used for the official Just Dance 2015 trailer.
  • Happy was the first song to be confirmed for Just Dance 2015.
  • The dancer is meant to look like Pharrell Williams. Also, a similar (or maybe the same) coach is in Blurred Lines, which is a song that is also partially made by Pharrell.
  • The background for the Sing-Along is very similar to that of the Starships (Charleston).
  • By a vote to see which new alternate gameplay would be unveiled, this song assumedly came second to I Love It (Guard Dance).
  • Happy (Sing-Along) is the only trio which the lead dancer is P1, instead of P2.
  • On the PAL cover, the dancer's shirt is shinier than in the game.
  • The backup choir was inspired by 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 leaked the track.
  • The panda from C'mon ,Timber , and I Gotta Feeling appears in the background.
  • 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 (What Does The Fox Say?). It was then followed by Boys (Summertime Love) and All About Us.
    • It's the second alternate mode that does this.
  • 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 an 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 17, 2015.
    • This makes Happy the song with the second-longest time gap between its removal from Just Dance Now and its re-release, the first being American Girl.
  • This is one of the songs selected for the Just Dance 2015 World Cup.[6]
  • The dancer appeared in the beta icons of some cups in Dance Quest.[7]
  • When the Sing-Along routine was first added to Just Dance Now, there was an error where the "- ALTERNATE" was absent from the song name. The song was later removed and re-added 10 minutes later with "- ALTERNATE" being present.
    • Also, before the song was removed, the preview audio originally played the first verse. However, it was changed to the second chorus before the bridge.
  • On June 15, 2016, Happy was free on Just Dance Now in commemoration of Smile Power Day.[8]
  • The Classic coach's jumper is worn in Natoo's music video for Je sais pas danser.
  • The Sing-Along routine is the only non-solo routine post-Just Dance 2 where the arrows and props are the color of the coaches’ gloves instead of the main pictogram color.
  • During the second verse, the left back-up dancer does not have painted legs unlike his arms.
  • The second bridge and the final chorus of the song are removed in-game.
