As they demonstrated with their previous mashup of Lorde, Beck, and 2Pac, YouTube stars Pomplamoose are very good at two things (at least): Reworking popular songs to make them their own, and accompanying said songs with engaging visual spectacles.
Their latest output is a Pharrell-filled tune, bringing together his cheery, danceable songs “Happy” and “Get Lucky,” with a bit of “Lose Yourself to Dance” thrown in for good measure. The visual effects are an impressive feat of creativity and well-choreographed camera placement. You may even find “Happy Get Lucky” to be just as irresistible as Pharrell’s own bouncy, 24-hour music venture. Enjoy.
