The MUMB is looking for a few hundred happy people to film themselves dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell Williams for a video we are producing for the EKU game on September 6th. All you need to do is record yourself, your friends, family members, pets, etc. dancing to the tune. It only needs to be a few moments of the tune. Be creative and, above all, happy! We'll edit submissions down to a single video that will be played on the big screen while the MUMB and visiting high school bands play the song as part of High School Band and Twirler Day at Miami. Click on Pharrell's hat for more details.
