VIDEO: Wimbledon joins global trend with 'Happy' dance video inspired by Pharrell Williams

Wimbledon Guardian: South West Trains workers bust some dances moves for 'Wimbledon is Happy' video South West Trains workers bust some dances moves for 'Wimbledon is Happy' video

Riding the wave of tennis euphoria, the great and the good of Wimbledon have starred in a 'Happy' video inspired by Pharrell Williams' hit single.

From Reverend Andrew Wakefield with his dog Mr Darcy dancing down the aisle, to the South West trains team working on the facade of Wimbledon station and a guinea pig from pet shop Creature Company, nearly 100 people danced around town for the video.

Love Wimbledon Business Improvement District (BID) commissioned students to produce the video with more than 26 businesses to capture the town buzz after the tennis.

Helen Clark Bell, Love Wimbledon BID manager who stars in the video, said: "The video shows so much that is great about Wimbledon, the people and the place.

"We hope you have as much fun and enjoyment watching it as those who took part in making it."

The film was made by university students Alice Denny, Jess Aston, Rowan Gill and Tyler Sear.

Have watched the video solely due to previous comment. I counted 12 'non-white' people (including one green). Or were they not black enough for you? Why would you even be counting?? If the video had been filmed in areas of Lambeth would it be ok to point out a lack of white people? No of course not and most of us would neither count nor notice. Get a life and live it!

There are a lot of black people in Wimbledon. You are incredibly ignorant to say what you did about Lambeth. Not black enough for me? I am astounded by your casual racism. Love Wimbledon has some kind of agenda against black citizens of the town. Sad

This is about life in Wimbledon, since when did race come in to it? It's people doing their day to day jobs and enjoying it! Let's put people in a video that don't work where these people do just so the race card ain't played?.....REALLY WOBWOBA?
