#PharrellWatch: A Shoe Collaboration and Two Happy Videos From Unexpected Places

What do Sicilian prison inmates and retirement home residents in New Zealand have in common? It ain't cinderblocks.

Footwear-focused fans of our good friend Pharrell Williams will be happy to know he's releasing a shoe collaboration with famed bootmaker Timberland. They'll be even happier to see the videos some of the musicians other devotees made this week.

Because while Williams' team was busy promoting the all-red Bee Line for Billionaire Boys Club Timberland boots, two groups of people were hard at work making video covers of the musican's smash hit Happy.

The first is from the Casa Circondariale Luigi Bodenza prison in Sicily, where inmates and guards alike showed off their dance moves. Their video is called Happy Dentro, or Happy Inside for those of you who don't speak the language.

The second comes from the Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch, New Zealand, where another group of inmates residents and caretakers worked together to create the impressive and adorable video 80-Odd Years of Happy. We're still trying to decide which team has better moves.
