United States Representative for Georgia's 5th congressional district, John Lewis won the internet after two videos of him dancing to the Oscar-nominated song “Happy” were posted on YouTube on Wednesday night.
Written and produced by Pharrell Williams for the animated movie “Despicable Me 2”, it also serves as the lead single from the musician’s second studio album, GIRL (2014).
The song has been ruling the music charts for more than a month now and is frequently billed as the biggest single of this year by leading news publications such as The Guardian.
PolicyMic called the bouncy tune “the surprising protest song of our generation.”
Several Kiev protesters, during the unrest that started earlier this year in February, took a break to dance to Pharrell’s song. It really helped lighten the mood of the embattled Ukrainian masses.
It truly is one of the best “Happy” performances of all time.

"Wag along if you feel like your tail is chasing you.”
