“Happy” has been burning up the charts, and if you are one of the few people who find the Pharrell song annoying then you are not human. Today, a new video for the song has made its way onto the internet, but it does not have random singer attempting to cover the Despicable Me 2 song, rather you see nuns, priest and Catholics all dancing to the tune.
Very much like the videos like it that have been posted before, the tune is in the background while these religious people in Rome dance. The video is titled “Happy for 2PapiSanti” in honor of Pope Francis declaring Juan Pablo II and Juan XXIII saints on April 27. The Vatican has also revealed they will stream the coronation ceremony which will take place at St. Peter’s Square.
The “#2PapiSanti” and “#2PopeSaints” hashtags are part of the church;s effort to help promote this event through social media.
Check out the video below and try not to sing and dance along with the song. Spoiler, it’s really hard.
Did you ever think you’d see the day when a grown man is asked to dance around to an electronic song during a job interview?
Well, that’s exactly what happened to a University of South Wales graduate who was applying for a job at Currys, a U.K. retailer. Alan Bacon, the 21-year-old interviewee was ready for an interview at the Cardiff branch of the retailer when he was asked to dance to Daft Punk’s 1997 hit song, “Around the World.” Bacon said that it was a dance-off the interviewers had set up against the eight applicants to see who would come out on top with the position at the store.
“I think everyone initially thought it was a joke,” Bacon told British paper, The Mirror. “But they were serious. All professionalism went out of the window. I’d spent the past week researching the company and looking forward to being able to express myself and talk about what I love doing. But I just felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable. I ended up dancing to ‘Around the World’ by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers.”
The potential employee continued b saying, “”It was so degrading, but I am desperate for work, so I just smiled and got on with it. I told my dad it was like a scene out of The Office. I’ve been to quite a few job interviews and have never had to do anything like it before. Another middle-aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song.”
No matter how hard he tried to impress those that we’re interviewing him, Bacon received a phone call revealing that he in fact did not get the position he “danced” for. A spokesperson for the retailer did come out and confirm that the store had in fact made the applicants dance as part of their interview and that “the store in question did not follow our official recruitment processes on this specific occasion.”
They continued the statement with, “We are very sorry to those interviewees impacted on this occasion and would like to invite them back to attend an official interview where they will be given a proper opportunity to demonstrate how they can contribute to our business.”
Looks like angels, devils and other other-worldly things aren’t the only thing that the cast of Supernatural have encountered. Ever since the “Harlem Shake” videos have become a viral hit (kind of like the “Call Me Maybes” of 2013) everyone from The Miami Heat players to probably your next door neighbors have done the ‘dance,’ recorded it and posted it online.
Now the cast and crew of The CW’s hit show have gotten in on the hype, so watch it all go down here in the “SupernaturalShake”:
Creamfields has been dubbed “the world’s leading dance music festival” by organizers and they are definitely sticking to that by scheduling some of the world’s biggest DJs to come and perform at the dance festival. The Prodigy, Tiesto, Avicii and David Guetta have all been confirmed to be performing at the three day music festival.
The Prodigy are set to headline the show on Saturday, this being their only summer festival appearance in Britain. While The Prodigy performs at one of the two main stages of the event, Avicii will be taking the DJing duties at the other main stage on Saturday. On Sunday, Tiesto and David Guetta will be taking the main stages as their own.
While these are just some of the names of the DJs on the list, there are many more such as Groove Armada, Richie Hawtin, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong, Afrojack, Ferry Corsten, Benny Benassi, Sasha, and Baauer who we all know as the mastermind producer behind the “Harlem Shake.”
Last year, there was an issue with flooding caused by a storm which led to acts such as Deadmau5, Tiesto and others not being able to perform. But this year, organizers say that they spent a lot of money to make sure that such a thing did not happen again so that everyone who attends don’t miss out because of a little rain.
Creamfields will be taking place in Daresbury Aug. 23–25.
