Robert’s Ultimate Guide to all 24 hours of Pharrell Williams’ Happy Video

by Robert Nagle on 3/2/2014

Here’s a running list of the Happy Dancers in the Pharrell Williams official 24 Hours of Happy video. At the very bottom of this web page is a list of everybody’s names, and I’m beginning to cross-index their dance times.  I’m not going to try to rate these dance vids too harshly; the main purpose of this page is just to list the dances and identify the people. Asking people to do impromptu dances on a city street is hard enough. So everybody receives 1 star unless there’s something highly unusual about it (with 3 stars being the best).

The Fastcocreate article about the filming said that filming took 11 days and 2 separate days for Pharrell’s stuff.

Those chosen by audition had the advantage of getting the song in advance, allowing them to rehearse their moves. But on the day itself, everyone got just one take, including Pharrell. “That’s what accounts for the charm,” says Valdes. “Everyone knew they had one shot–this was their moment to go all out, and we love that.” “The video’s imperfections, the funny bloopers and mess-ups, are what give it character,” says Pharell, whose own performances alternated between what he calls “semi-choreographed” (see the bowling alley at 11:00 p.m.) and improvisation. “I’m not interested in perfection. It’s boring. Some of my favorite moments are accidental. There’s one where I’m underground. I was turning a corner just as a train was coming in our direction, and it stopped right on cue! It was weird. The universe gave us great moments that day.”  … WAFLA chose to shoot in Los Angeles, … starting at sunrise in Downtown L.A., moving to LAX, Silver Lake, Echo Park and Hollywood, among other places, ultimately circling back to Downtown.

Says a crew member:

I was lucky enough to be a part of this as the location manager. It was a rough one. Not sure how Jon (Beattie)  did it. We did 12-15 hour days. There was a crew of 15-20 people with us at all times. Sometimes when we where shooting, we would have to make a u-turn to head back the other way. So all of a sudden, this mob of people would have to stand behind the camera, and do a 180 in sync. It was madness. There would also be times when we had to make a quick decision on which way to go. We would scout ahead and find out that the street was blocked, so at the last second, we changed the route. We also had fun with the talent. We would find someone walking down the street, and invite them to be a part of the video. It turned out amazing.

Says another:

The biggest obstacle was the fact that we were walking backwards through non-locked off streets and side walks. I ran into many a telephone pole and street sign, and on several occasions had to crawl under John to stay out of the picture. It was a lot of fun to work on, and I think the 4 minute edited version looks great.

Background about the Video: 2 Minute Behind-the-Scenes Video and interview with the directors, Fastcocreate profile of the production process, A video production blog describes the lens, filming process, etc.

Other articles with lots of photos and snarkinessWe Watched Pharrell Williams 24 Hours Happy Video so you didn’t have to , Pitchfork’s 5 Best Things about the Happy Video, Christopher Grant Harris expanded account of dancers (with generous screenshots); Wikipedia page for the Pharrell Williams Happy song (it doesn’t yet have a separate page).

My favorites so far are:  Happy Hair! 3:32AM,  Bollywood-style dancer Monica Moskatow  7:56AM, Elegant Blonde Girl in Street 9:56 AM (just magical!),  Jiggly guy with a fan 11:28AM,  Preteen Acrobatic Girl 12:28 PM, Asian Gene Kelley 1:28 PM,  2 Asian guys in tuxes in front of a Star Bucks 2:20pm,  Girl in Polka Dotted Dress 7:16PM (unbelievably good!) Man on Stilts at 7:36 PM,  Amazing & Speedy Guy at 10:44 PM (Amazing Choreography!), 2 Cute & Entertaining Girls at the Bowling Alley 11:08PM,  Hula Hoop Girl 11:40 PM  (but seriously I’m only getting started)

How to Help:  If you know the name of any of the dancers, mention it in the comment section. (If you were one of the dancers who participated, drop me a line — I’d love to do a brief interview!). I’d also like to identify the buildings and neighborhoods if you know it. (I will probably look through Youtube comments for help, but give me time!) .  April 2 Update: I’m currently gathering information about places where everything was shot. I hope to have a nice map showing landmarks and dance paths fairly soon.  Stay tuned. I definitely appreciate everybody who identifies the dancer’s name. By the way, I’m behind on doing my screenshots and commentary, but the index of all the actors (at bottom) is updated every day.

Disclaimer: I am aware that the  video project was part of a world-wide social media campaign for the movie. I am a willing pawn here. But I think the 24 hour dance project is interesting for its own sake and really transcends the song or the movie it’s trying to pimp. It’s a great way to document a city and  the fashions and decor of the time.  I shall write more about that later.

This page will be extremely long and is definitely a work in progress. A lot is still incomplete.  I’ll fill in all the dances and hours eventually, but for now I’ll be just skipping around, giving first preference to non-celebrities. As an aside, let me say how tricky it is getting a good non-blurry screenshot from youtube on a Linux PC when the dancers are moving so swiftly (and often in the dark!)

Tangential Aside #1: You may already have heard about the fatal car accident of Courtney Ann Sanford, caused by the Facebook update she posted while driving, “The Happy Song makes me fell so happy.”  What a tragedy! I do not condone texting while driving (and certainly don’t believe the song deserves any blame here), but this page needs to acknowledge that a song about being happy is just a song — ephemeral, distracting and even a bit escapist. All humans need a little bit of happy  in their lives, but we also need to recognize that happiness — like life itself — is a fragile commodity. Ultimately this dance video (and this page) is precisely a celebration of this ephemerality — while we still have time. Tangential Aside #2: You knew it was going to happen: some repressive regime was going to ban the song “Happy” or arrest the people who made the dance clip.  Seems like Iran couldn’t resist the opportunity to steal the thunder.  (Read more) This seems to come straight out of a Kundera novel.

Postscript 1: While clicking the links from this page to the youtube video from an iPad, I noticed that the link doesn’t cue to the right time on the hour. I also noticed that youtube feeds too many commercials.  Shucks!  I guess I’m going to start changing the URLs to the 24hoursofhappy.com domain so you don’t have to sit through unnecessary commercials. This will take a while for me to do.

Dancers for 12:00 AM for Pharrell Williams' "Happy" music video

Time: 12:00 AM (12:00 AM )

Spirit/Energy: *
Visuals/Dress: *
Use of Space/Cinematography: *
Extras:
Time: 12:04AM (12:04 AM )
Name(s): Break-dancing girl at the Mobil Gas Station
Dance Moves/Style: *** Probably the best of the whole 24 hours. Lots of break dancing and running back and forth.
Spirit: *** Very expressive.
Visuals: ** What's nice is that her appearance (dress, etc) doesn't particularly stand out at the beginning, so when she bursts into this long dance, it really is a shock!
Use of Space/Cinematography: ** (Unfortunately parts of this segment are too dark)
Extras/Comments: This segment amazes me on many levels. First, although the dancing is extraordinary and has a lot of flourishes, it stays natural the whole time (well, except for the somersaults!). Second, her moves are really fast and involve so many combinations that it's a joy to keep track. A very fun moment comes when she taps against a car with a passenger inside, and when the driver returns, he gazes sheepishly at her the whole time. (Actually the whole place has a lot of spectators). Also, note the cameo of the gasoline tanker!

Time : 12:20 AM (12:20 AM )
Name(s): Derrick T. Tuggle (aka that guy who dances in the Black Keye's Lonely Boy video)
Dance Moves/Style: *
Spirit/Energy: * (His character is to stay composed and suave -- so we wouldn't expect lots of smiles here)
Visuals/Dress: ** The brightly lit colors of the shop are a pleasing backdrop.
Use of Space/Cinematography: * The camera operator made the mistake of trying to shoot from too far out. Like the Lonely Boy vid, it should have stayed relatively close to the dancer who makes mainly tight moves
Extras: A very toned-down performance, but some wacky knee moves and a strange kind of waving.
Time 12:24 AM (12:24 AM )
Name (s): Angela Trimbur, aka the Dance like No One's Watching Girl (See here and here).
Dance Moves/Style: *** (actually more like 2 1/2 stars because some of the moves seem artificial). But the part where she dances with the gas pump is destined to be a classic moment. Loved the play she twirled around with the wind shield wiping pole too.
Spirit/Energy: ***
Visuals/Dress: *** Nice outfit, plus you can't beat the brightly lit colors of the gas station.
Use of Space/Cinematography: *** Although I wasn't a fan of her crawling on the cement, I definitely appreciated the way the camera did a 360 around her during that moment.
Extras: I'm torn about this one. Obviously a great dancer, but her dance moves seem a little too artificial and ostentatious; was it really necessary to crawl over the cement? On the other hand, she was really pushing boundaries here and had some spectacular energy and moves. I guess nobody ever criticized Busby Berkeley for making his dancers do so many floor moves. Probably tied for the best of the hour with 12:04am. (Check out her other dances in the links I provided above)

Time 5:12 AM (5:12 AM )
Name(s): Girl in colorful leotards
Dance Moves/Style: *** She literally explodes with dance moves midway through
Spirit/Energy: *** She really runs fast!
Visuals/Dress *** Very cute girl with a great outfit. I guess the multicolored leotards and pink shoes should clued me in that she meant business.
Use of Space/Cinematography *** In other segments I found bothersome how the camera would increase its distance from the dancer midway through, but here it works because the girl's moves are so open and interesting. When the dancer did her dance explosion, it's a lot more dramatic from a distance. The park gives a lot of space around her.
Extras I admit it. Initially I was duped into thinking that she was just some well-dressed jogger going about her daily jog, but midway through she reveals a quick series of sophisticated dance steps, indicating she was just toying with us all along. Definitely the best of the hour.
Time 5:16 AM (5:16 AM )
Name (s): Big Bosomed girl with stripes
Dance Moves/Style: * I like the movement midway through of her "falling ahead" because of gravity
Spirit/Energy: **
Visuals/Dress: * *
Use of Space/Cinematography: * * The natural scenery and diagonal ground really makes the visual frame look spectacular.
Extras: Unlike her predecessor, this dancer actually looks like she might be jogging. I was a little worried that someone with a larger frame might not look graceful jogging down a path, but it works a lot better than I would have thought, partly because she uses a lot of open gestures and has a lot of spirit. Overall the downward-inclining path makes the whole segment pleasant to watch.

Use of Space/Cinematography:
Extras: This excruciatingly bad product placement of minion detracts from the 24 hour project. Even if you accept that the dance project was a promotional vehicle for the DM2 movie, there are lots of subtler ways to do it via props, T-shirts and posters. Or: maybe a human and a minion could have interacted? The lack of imagination here boggles the mind.

Name(s): Magic Johnson

Spirit/Energy: *
Visuals/Dress: *
Use of Space/Cinematography: *
Extras: I am generally not a fan of celebrity cameos, and this is a perfect example of why they are so unnecessary. Mentioned in the initial press releases, but nobody would actually watch more than 5 seconds of it. I don't expect expert choreography here, but at least Johnson should try to do something different. (Personally I believe the directors just wanted an excuse to meet the athlete)

Visuals/Dress: ***
Use of Space/Cinematography: * (Lots of alternating shadow on the sidewalk)
Extras: While not the only one with a dog, this dancer does a lot of more things. Midway way she picks it up, twirls around several times and cuddles it a lot. This one is a personal favorite. It's amazing how much attitude this woman can convey through facial expressions, head twirls and hand gestures. She smacks the dog at the very end!
Time: 5:56 AM (5:56 AM )

Extras: He does a lot of business with the hat -- and then leaves it on the street (Litterer!) I actually was less impressed by this performance than by his dance audition vid where I could actually see his face.

i am trying find who the girl was at 5:48pm.

Kenny B March 17, 2014 at 6:37 pm

Amy Hessler 8:12am, Natalya Oliver 1:36pm, Iman Crosson (aka Alphacat) 12:40pm. Who is the beauty at 12:36pm? :-)

FROM ROBERT Thanks. Added.

Kenny B March 17, 2014 at 7:39 pm

Sorry, Amy Hessler is at 6:12am. My bad.

Robert Nagle March 17, 2014 at 8:13 pm

For future commenters: If I want to respond to an information question, I will do it at the bottom of your comment — don’t look for me to respond in a separate comment. I really appreciate clues to people’s identities and if you don’t get an answer, wait a week or two :) I have been trying to monitor youtube comments for info and people’s twitter feeds as well. Another thing. If you are not 100% sure but 75% sure (for example), let me know — and then I can try to figure it out.

Kenny B March 18, 2014 at 12:39 pm

Megan Batoon 6:44pm, Marlee Hightower 6:48am. My apologies for the typo on the Amy Hessler time, she’s a theater actor and has her own website that bears her name. Great idea here!

ROBERT: Thanks. Added and corrected.

Stacie Hebert March 19, 2014 at 9:14 pm

Robert, GAWD, how did you get the names of the dancers?? I am SO curious!

I would like to help you with this project, if you can arrange for us to coordinate, and you want help of course :-) . I am a social scientist and find this to be a fascinating experiment that shows so many sides of people and also of L.A., which I love as well. My favorite part of this whole idea is the people who volunteered to get their one shot to dance their hearts out for just 4 minutes on video.

I watched most of the 24 hours – in doses and I fast forwarded through a number (usually the ones that were inside buildings I found less interesting than the city ones), so that I could watch parts of a couple while one 4-minute song played, flipping back and forth – in other words, I watched 2-4 at once. I saved times/links to my faves, or just ones that stood out in some way, and made a comment to identify them for later review. Most of the shots in the official video are ones I have marked down, as to time of day.

Also, I was very curious about the locations and got lots of street and business names, so that I have general and specific information about the areas used for each hour. Let me know if you want that list and if we can combine our efforts to catalog/document this awesome creation!

ROBERT REPLIES: I wrote her an email reply. To summarize what I said: I’d LOVE for anyone to provide details about locations — street intersections, etc. From now on, I’m going to try to collect this information and perhaps make a Google map of it. As you can tell, cataloguing all the dance segments is a huge undertaking, and it would be better to use some kind of collaborative system to share the burden. I’m currently looking into a solution in Google Docs which would publish dynamically into a HTML website and allow multiple authors. A wiki could probably do the job, but I’m trying to avoid that for several reasons (mostly technical). I know that eventually a wikipedia page will be created for the 24 hours video (Heck, I may even be the one to do it!), but for now I’m just gathering info and want the freedom to comment/editorialize in a way that is not under the Wikipedia NPOV strait jacket.

If you are interested in contributing, perhaps you could volunteer to “adopt” one of the hours I haven’t gotten around to, gather basic data in the same basic format and then I can transfer it to my tables when you’re done. If you’re interested in doing that, drop me an email (idiotprogrammer at fastmailbox.net) or make a comment on this blog post.

Mateus March 25, 2014 at 1:40 pm

Anyone know the girl at 1:36am?

Neto March 26, 2014 at 4:31 pm

I was trying to get her name too tho

kidimi March 27, 2014 at 4:05 am

Anyone know the name of/at 3:40 PM???

Edward C. March 28, 2014 at 2:02 pm

I really like the swing dancing couple at 9:08 AM. They dance so well, I almost suspect them of being professionals.

Brandi March 29, 2014 at 2:29 am

That guy at 12:40pm looks familiar (and he’s cute, too).

Will March 30, 2014 at 8:22 pm

Leah LaBelle is the girl in the restaurant at 12:01:13

Blonde Roller Girl at 8:24:08 is pretty great.

Robert : Added. Agreed, I hadn’t seen roller girl yet!

Eugene April 2, 2014 at 9:58 am

Who is that girl at 10:36am??
OMG! She’s a natural beauty!

Lane Barden April 2, 2014 at 10:40 am

I would like to know who is the cool girl in the 11:40 am spot, walking down the street with the beanie pulled down over her head and the colorful dress. Can you do an interview with her? I’m (and my 11 year old son) are such a fan..

Rebecca April 2, 2014 at 4:38 pm

OK…***WHO** is the hottie at 12:56pm? Reminds me of a young Chan Tatum!!!

FROM ROBERT: I just wanted to say that I am still setting up. I haven’t even seen a lot of the people — although I make it a point to look at every segment after someone mentions it here. I check the youtube comments every week or so to see what identities have been learned and try to update the latest information ASAP. So check back here periodically.

Japneesh Singh April 4, 2014 at 5:02 pm

The beautiful Indian girl at 9:16 p.m. is Sapna Rohra !!

teri marlowe April 10, 2014 at 2:02 pm

Hi, I’m one of the dancers in the Pharrell Williams 24 hour video, but it’s so long I can’t find myself. Can you help me? I’m a 43 years old large breasted blonde wearing a bright orange dress with a little brown sequence sweater. Thanks!

ROBERT RESPONDS: I contacted her by email. Here are Photos from one of her movies (she’s the blonde).

Richard April 11, 2014 at 8:32 pm

Robert, there isn’t any section in your large table above for the 2 PM dancers. One of the two swing dancers at 2:20 PM is Minn Vo: http://la.blocagency.com/talent/dance/minn-vo.

Does anyone know who the Asian guy dancing with the backpack and scooter is at 2:16 PM?

ROBERT RESPONDS Thanks! I should be getting around to 2:00 PM soon! That pair is one of the best dancers in the 24 hours!

Richard April 12, 2014 at 12:37 am

And the two dudes at 1:32 AM are Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan:

Robert Responds: Thanks. I added. I thought those guys were great!

Cynthia Lester April 15, 2014 at 5:09 pm

4:48am- I’m the free-spirit hotel maid coming home from work late night who is unstoppable and wont let ” bad news talking this and that” break her, waste her time, or hold her back from being “happy” and making due with the little time she has to have some fun, wipe the stress away, and let go! contact me if you want an interview cynthialester@gmail.com

Robert Responds Yippee! (I contacted her privately– stay tuned for the interview.)

Cynthia Lester April 16, 2014 at 10:42 am

Time: 5:52 PM
Name(s): Crazy Guy #1 on the Bridge with the “yes” shirt

I think this is one of my crushes Danny Dolan? anybody is that him? and can someone identify what hour Ryan Heffington is at, i still haven’t seen his bit…

Robert Responds Dolan is not in the credits, so I’m going to hold off on him now. I think I’ve seen Heffington already, though I don’t remember where.

Cynthia Lester April 16, 2014 at 11:48 am

$$ money tshirt boy is Jos Mckain (the credits say Jes McKain)!!! mmmm! to dance with him is exquisite!!!
Time: 5:56 PM
Name(s): Crazy Guy #2 on the Bridge with the money shirt

Robert Responds: Added. Thanks.

Arez April 23, 2014 at 1:17 am

I desperately want to know the guy at 5:04 a.m.
I try to google it one by one of the name on the list, but still can’t found his name. :(

Jemima April 24, 2014 at 1:23 am

The young man at 7:20pm is doing Irish “hardshoe” step dance, where all the action is down at the feet. The film crew doesn’t seem clued in to this at first so some of his moves aren’t visible! He is doing some pretty advanced step combinations, wish all of them could be seen.

Robert Responds . You are right! He’s a great dancer, and at key parts the camera operator misses the footwork. But after looking at several of the dance segments, I realize how hard it is to frame these dancers properly.

Heather a.k.a Snowflake April 30, 2014 at 10:45 pm

Thank you so much for your comments about my roller dancing and including links to my videos on Youtube! The director actually startled me a couple of times because he kept yelling at me to keep skating forward. You do see me stumble at the very end of my clip after he yelled, “Quick! Skate out of the shot!” LOL! Another crazy thing was that they didn’t plan out a place for me to roller skate! They kept driving me to locations with wet sand, weeds growing up through the uneven sidewalks, and bumpy roads with loose rocks. All were extremely dangerous locations for a roller dancer! After being driven around for over two hours in the heat, I was ready to quit and go home. Luckily, there was somebody in the production crew who ran ahead and found a smooth sidewalk that I could skate on. I am extremely grateful to whomever that crew member was! I am happy that I ended up roller dancing in the video! I will contact several of my friends who appear in this video and have them give you their info! Thanks again! :D

Monica Moskatow May 1, 2014 at 1:37 am

Hello Robert,
I’m really grateful that you’ve taken an interest in the video and of all of the dancers personally. Also thank you for listing me as one of your favorites! It’s always a pleasure to hear when I have entertained them. Shooting the video was a great experience and I would love to share my story with you and how I got to be in it. Keep up the great work and feel free to contact me through my email. Thanks a lot!

Sincerely,
Monica Moskatow (Bollywood Girl 7:56am)

Richard May 9, 2014 at 3:15 pm

Yesssss, who is the 5:04 AM guy?? And 2:16 PM with the backpack! They’re the best two in the whole thing!

Duane May 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm

Who is the lady at 2:44AM? The “Animal T-Shirt Woman?” Great work on this site!

Antonio May 18, 2014 at 1:31 pm

The name of the girl of 3:40 PM…anyone knows???

Timmy May 18, 2014 at 9:08 pm

Alex Wong is at 10:53am?

Steve May 26, 2014 at 3:02 am

The Jiggly guy with a fan at 11:28 AM loses this sunglasses soon after he’s going, but doesn’t lose a beat!

David Niewolski May 28, 2014 at 12:31 pm

Greetings,
I’d like some information on the woman at 11:32 am.

Thanks,
David N

Robert responds : David, I’ll keep an eye out for this one and report if I find a name for her.

Eryn May 29, 2014 at 8:45 pm

You kind of missed out on the entire 10:00-11:00 time slot, but when you get around to putting it in you can add Rob Zabrecky at 10:12AM. The setting is Union Station. Rob Zabrecky is a magician and actor, frequently appearing at the Magic Castle.

Robert Responds : Thanks! I think this weekend I’ll get around to the 10AM people! Honestly, there is no rhyme or reason to what order I am going through the dancers.

Mann May 31, 2014 at 1:46 am

i’m also curious about the girl at 3:40pm. i think she dances great and is also incredibly sexy. and she looks like she loves being in front of a camera. it’s just too bad the sun shining right into the camera interferes with our view of her.

Robert Responds . Thanks! Sorry, I forgot to talk about that dance. She’s great, and I agree the sun really got in the way!

Dan June 2, 2014 at 11:18 pm

The 6:00AM hour is missing from your list. In the early part of the hour, they are heading South on Silver Lake Boulevard. They pass Fanning St. and Eastery Terr. in the video, but the video is all mirror image (note the words on the signs are all reversed). Also, 5:40 – 5:48AM is heading south on Vermont Parkway starting at Griffith Park.
Good luck with your project!

DavidN June 6, 2014 at 8:34 am

Greetings,

Katie Malia is the very talented and lovely performer appearing at 11:32AM. There’s lots of her very funny persona online.

Thanks,
DavidN

Robert Responds: Thanks. Another person not listed on the original dance credits. I’ll look into it. Thanks!

at 12:48am, the motorcycle riders are in the city of glendale, making a right turn from glendale blvd. onto san fernando rd., heading south. they soon cross back into the city of los angeles, passing an LAPD station on the right(note the large “POLICE” sign). they then make a right on fletcher dr. and head westbound. from 2:56pm – 3:12pm, the action moves to the city of pasadena, at(as can be clearly seen) the first baptist church at the corner of marengo ave. and holly st. from 3:16pm until at least 3:48pm they are in the highland park section of los angeles.

So, I was watching the 6am video. Then I noticed a STOP sign had backwards lettering, and the cars were parked/driving on the wrong side of the road. At 12 minutes in they flip the video so it’s a mirror image of the neighbourhood. I wonder why they did that.

Robert replies : Yes, I had heard that too. I’m sure there’s a production reason for this — or maybe somebody just messed up!

So I am not sure but the woman in the train station at 10:28am looks a lot like Ellen Muth from Dead Like Me, does anyone else think so? She is not listed in the credits though and i could be wrong since she is wearing large sunglasses. Robert do you know who she is?

2:56am : one of our favorite experiences together! I was NOT scheduled to be in it and tried to get out of it, however they needed a mom and selected me. So glad I did it! It made my daughter so happy! I only remember the location when we are in the area. We changed locations several times that night. The production crew were the nicest people to work with, especially for a project of this magnitude.
Brooke-Monae loves to dance, sing, act, and model! You can see her in Kids React.
