The Islands of Tahiti Are Happy!

The Islands of Tahiti Are Happy!

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (March 4, 2014) – GIE Tahiti Tourisme, Tahiti Tourisme North America’s head office, recently posted “Happy (We Are from Tahiti)” on YouTube.  The video was created as a special version of Pharrell Williams’ hit “Happy” to showcase the Islands of Tahiti’s beauty and people.  Williams’ hit song has gone viral with different countries adapting it to showcase what makes their country “happy.”

As in the original clip filmed in Los Angeles, the videos use a lip dub concept. A lip dub is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to create a music video. It involves filming individuals or a group of people lip synching while listening to a song or any recorded audio then dubbing over it in post editing with the original audio of the song.

From Paris, Tokyo and Sao Paulo, the concept has become a worldwide phenomenon and GIE Tahiti Tourisme embraced the “happy” concept to show what makes the islands and people of Tahiti so special.

Behind the camera were two local producers, who used the beautiful islands of Tahiti, Moorea and Taha’a in GIE Tahiti Tourisme’s version of “Happy.”
