Additional facts include that the "Happy" video is the first ever 24-hour music video and was filmed over 11 days using a Steady Cam, and the song was Pharrell's first No.1 as a solo artist on the Hot 100. "Happy" received two Grammy awards at the 2015 ceremony. "Weird Al" Yankovic wrote a parody of the song for his 2014 album, "Mandatory Fun."
