Pharrell Williams Happy (Veg in Singapore)

Hey guys,

So recently I worked under the Vegetarian Society (Singapore) to create a music video showing off our veg lifestyles to Happy by Pharrell Williams. The shooting took place over 2 months, and features more than 10 different locations.

My primary aim was that I wanted to give vegetarianism in Singapore (and the global veg movement by extension) a social facelift, which would hopefully help to convince people that we are more than capable of having fun, and it's not all seriousness and negativity. I strongly believe that giving people a more positive impression of vegetarianism would help lower the perceived 'social costs' of adopting such a lifestyle, thereby making people more open to it, and benefiting the animals in the long run.

Anyway, the video is finally out, and I'd like to share it with you guys!


Btw, if anyone in interested in how I look like, I appear in the video at 0:25, 0:49, 1:37, and 1:51

If you enjoy it, please do leave a like and share it with your friends! ^^

Great video, Yingchen! (I didn't know you cared to dance!)

This is a great way to advocate for plant-based/vegan lifestyles.

Beautiful! I'd have loved to join you all!
I can't hear that song without wanting to dance, even if it's just my shoulders!

Great job...loved it!

“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” - Thomas Edison

Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as part of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth. - Lao Tzu
