THE Stanford-le-Hope community has come together for a Happy video remake.

Shane Ralph brought the town together to create its own version of the video to Pharrell Williams' feel good number one hit Happy.

The original was the first ever 24 hour music video and featured people dancing along in Los Angeles. Steve Carell and Jamie Foxx are among the Hollywood stars who make cameo appearances.

The Stanford-le-Hope remake, filmed at various locations in the town features some of the community's well-known faces, such as Reverand John Guest and members from hit dance troupe Youth Creation.

Clips were filmed in shops, church halls, living rooms and the town's cafes.

And, of course, a Despicable Me minion pops up, just like in the original.

The video has already attracted more than 5,000 views since it was posted late last week.
