Lynchburg Residents Shoot New 'Happy' Video

Lynchburg, VA - Lynchburg is named one of the happiest and healthiest places to live in the country and many are celebrating the new title.

Wednesday at the community market, many came out to help film a "Happy" video.

The song by Pharrell Williams has become a dance craze all over the Internet.

Folks in Lynchburg wanted to create their own after getting the ranking from a recent Gallup poll.

"Lots of times we're usually working and kind of, you know, like ships in the night. So this allowed us to get together, be happy, and do a little happy dance together to celebrate our city being one of the happiest in the United States," Market Manager Jennifer Kennedy said.

The video is being shot in many different locations but will be edited together by next Friday.

It will air on LTV, which is the city-run cable channel, along with the city's website, and of course YouTube.
