Video of the Day: The Atlanta Police Department does “Happy”

The APD offers some levity in a YouTube account filled with surveillance footage and PSAs.

If you’ve been busy watching and re-watching Tim Howard’s spectacular soccer saves, you might have missed the release of yet another version of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” video—this one courtesy of the Atlanta Police Department. Officers and employees break into dance in front of local landmarks such as the Fox Theatre and the CNN Center, proving that they, too, are capable of having a little fun. The video adds some humor to the department’s otherwise serious YouTube account, which mostly features surveillance footage from crime scenes, PSAs, and press conferences.

We aren’t completely surprised to encounter a little humor in the APD. After all, our May issue cover subject, APD Officer Ashley Gibson, is better known as “Smiley.”
