Everyone around the world is making Pharrell "Happy" videos. Here're our 8 favorites.

Seven-time Grammy winner and Oscar nominee Pharrell Williams -- singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, drummer, fashion designer, entrepreneur, vampire, and world-renowned bird watcher (JK!) -- can add another feather to his massive Arbys hat: travel trendsetter.


Remember his 24-hr video for “Happy”? After debuting last November, it pretty much owned every music video ever made -- basically out-music-videoing the entire genre, forever.


Filmed in one take, the video featured Williams, locals, and celebs like Steve Carell and Magic Johnson -- 400 in total -- dancing around LA over the course of a full day, in an epic homage to the city and its peeps. Needless to say, it went viral.

While we had a feeling copycats would crop up, we didn't expect most of them to focus on travel and hometown pride. From Sydney to Singapore, Krampot to Krakow, we weeded through dozens of vids to present our faves.
