#PharrellWatch: "Happy" Goes Triple Platinum in the UK

If this didn't put a smile on his face, we don't know what would.

The British Recorded Music Industry officially recognized Pharrell Williams' infectious single Happy as a triple platinum record this week after calculating that 1.8 million copies of the song have been sold.

That certification made it an especially big week for the Details cover guy, who also released the music video for his song "Come Get It Bae." It hit YouTube on Wednesday and already has close to 3 million views, but if you haven't seen it here's a quick rundown: We open in a bright, airy studio and see the words "beauty has no expiration date," before launching into an intergenerational dance audition. Miley Cyrus, whose voice appears on the track uncredited, also makes an appearance. But be warned. There are jorts involved.
