Whether the sixth formers at St George’s school will be happy this time on Saturday remains to be seen as they commit to watch a 24-hour long music video.
Happy by Pharrell Williams became the world’s first 24-hour music video, featuring a cast of celebrities including Steve Carell, Jamie Foxx, Kelly Osbourne, Magic Johnson, and of course Pharrell himself, dancing to the hit song.
Broken up into hour chunks, the full version can be viewed on YouTube.
The purpose of the feat, in which the word “happy” will be heard more than 6,000 times, is to raise money for the school’s new media suite.
Media teacher John Webber said: “It will be a 24-hour session where sixth form students will commit to watching the full 24-hour music video of Happy.
“There will be lots of activities planned during the 24-hour period but the music video will be on from 1pm on Friday until 1pm on Saturday.
“Students will pay to enter and pay a forfeit if they wish to leave before the end.”
The school, in Meadow Road, is appealing to local businesses to help out with food and drink donations as well as any equipment – for activities for use during summer fairs – they might be able to offer.
