A video of a “happy song” for Valentine’s Day got more than 2.7 million views on YouTube on Thursday.
Happy song is a catchy song sung in the UK, USA and Australia.
It’s usually performed in a happy and cheerful voice and includes words like “happy, happy, happy,” and “happy.”
The video of the “happy” song was created by British songwriter and actor David Pelly, who wrote and directed it.
Pelly told Buzzfeed that he and his co-writer, Matt Pinch, wrote the song in 2013 while studying for a degree in songwriting.
Pinch told the British paper the song has been “totally viral” ever since.
“It’s really a song that I wrote when I was in high school and we were just going through the whole thing and I thought, I’m going to make a song for Valentine,” Pelly told the newspaper.
Panchip added that he thought it would be a “great way to say ‘thank you’ for people that I’ve made a life for,” and he hopes that the song will inspire others to give a “little bit of money to charity.”
Happy song was originally created as a parody of “Happy Birthday” by Australian singer-songwriter Sam Smith.
Smith wrote a song called “Happy Valentine’s,” which has racked up nearly 17 million views.
Pancakes, candy and a smile were all included in the video.
Penny said he thinks that the video will help people who are struggling financially.
“If you’re a student struggling and can’t afford to pay the rent and food and utilities, I think that this video will give you hope that you might get some support,” he said.
“I think it’s going to be really heartwarming and very uplifting to see.”
Penny’s video has received more than 30 million views since it was posted to YouTube.
