Deaf Campers Make Us Fall in Love With 'Happy' All Over Again

Hearing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is one thing, but seeing it come to life through sign language is another.

Members of the Deaf Film Camp at Camp Mark Seven in Old Forge, New York, created the video below. In it, you’ll see an American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation of the popular song, and it’s certainly making us happy.

The camp is a two-week program where deaf or hard-of-hearing teens get a crash course in filmmaking along with a regular collection of outdoor summer camp activities.

This year, with the help of performance artist Rosa Lee Timm and ASL interpreter Azora Telford, the campers created and starred in the happy video below.
