New “Happy” video features Buffalo


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A new YouTube video is spreading around Buffalo, featuring the Pharrell song “Happy.” The video features several western New York landmarks, with people dancing and being “happy.”

After similar videos took off in other cities, Nick Hughes and his wife Amanda decided to make their own. They teamed up with their friend Kervin Myrtil, who does video and editing and started to film around the city. Nick Hughes says they wanted to “showcase how great this city is.”

In the video, you see Shea’s Performing Arts Center, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Ralph Wilson Stadium, Delaware Park, the waterfront and Niagara Falls among many other locations.

The group’s Facebook page features photos from the different spots around Buffalo where they filmed the video. You can see the photos on their Facebook page.
