Byron Bay-based video company Rest Your Eyes Productions has joined a world-wide trend of communities producing videos featuring local residents having fun to the soundtrack of Pharrell Williams’s smash hit Happy, from the movie Despicable Me 2.
Rest Your Eyes’ producer Jonatan Lundmark told Echonetdaily the viral trend was in anticipation of International Happiness Day next Thursday.
‘With the International Day of Happiness coming up on March 20 and the storm of videos going viral on YouTube with people from all over the world declaring the happiness of their city, in form of tribute videos, we thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase that Byron Bay is definitely the happiest town out there,’ he said.
So the Rest Your Eyes crew – Oliver Certa, Jonatan and brother Sebastian Lundmark, together with The Happiest Man Alive AKA Tommy Franklin – hit the streets of Byron Bay over the weekend and captured people letting loose to the song. Enjoy
