Pharrell Williams Spreads Sunshine at Made in America Festival

Pharrell

Like a gust of wind, Pharrell Williams stormed the stage on Day 2 of the Budweiser Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on Sunday. Despite the wet weather, which delayed his set about an hour, The Neptunes hitmaker spread some sunshine with his feel-good hits. Wearing a red bandana and red Bee Line x Timberland boots, he opened with “Lose Yourself to Dance.”

He and his all-female dancers, the Baes, grooved to his G I R L singles “Come Get It Bae” and “Marilyn Monroe,” and took it back with some classics including “Frontin’” and “Rock Star.”

“I’m really disappointed that they did not let the press back out here to see what it looks like in Philadelphia for 100,000 people to be happy at one time,” he said before closing with “Happy.”

You know you’ve made it when Weird Al spoofs your song. The parodist remakes Pharrell’s inescapable hit “Happy” in “Tacky,” his first of eight music videos to be released over the next eight days.

The clip, shot at the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, stars comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black.

While sporting a wild wardrobe, Weird Al pokes fun at all things tacky including a YOLO license plate and taking selfies at funerals.

“Now I’m dropping names almost constantly / That’s what Kanye West keeps tellin’ me,” he sings.
