Ready to get "Happy" again Bangor?

On this Throwback Thursday, we want to hop in the time machine and take a trip waaaaay back to the year 2014. Back then you could go to a crowded restaurant, concert, sporting event, shopping mall, bar, park, beach. You name it, you could pretty much do it. Life was good, but obviously the last few months have turned everything upside down. In a word, we were ‘Happy”

"Happy" is a song written, produced, and performed by Pharrell. It was part of the movie “Despicable Me 2” The song was a No. 1 smash in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and like 19 other countries. It sold a ton of copies, it won awards, and it spawned about a million lip sync videos, including the Queen City.

Back in 2014 with "Happy" mania in full swing, it seemed like pretty much the entire city took part in this incredible video.
