Man in shorts at the Oscars.

Scroll way down... or search on the page for Pharrell Williams.

Forgive them, Althouse, for they know not what they do.

(Note to deleted commenter: Your attempt to give a "shortcut" link went to the same place as my link.)

Maybe he is from the Bahammas...is his name Tommy? I suspect structural racism.

At least he didn't wear that hat.

Actually, he did wear that hat - when he sang.

I am a shorts loving fool, but this wasn't a very good Oscars look.

Johnny Weir is trying to out-pretty Tara Lipinski.

Maybe he ran out of cash.

The whole thing is a hideous spectacle of botox_y affluence when many in the country are hurting financially.

And then Hollywood is crying about its taaaaxes

He's still dressed better than Jimmy Kimmell.

Clap along with me if happiness is the truth.

I like the song, and hadn't really heard or noticed it before the Oscars.

Bought it on iTunes today. It will go on my Upbeat Inspirational (non-religious) playlist, which is full of awesomeness and should be prescribed to people suffering from depression.

"Happy" should be on repeat-track at Gitmo as a form of delightful torture.

Esteemed blogress, I think you would like the song because of some throwback notes in its music. It made me think of the song "Cool Jerk" by the Capitols.

The "Happy" video is cute...love all the people and the dancing. Apparently the shorts are his thing.

I saw the Happy performance that was on the Oscars show. Distracted by the Up With People style dancers, but it seemed like a pleasant, innocuous pop song. Forgettable.

Doesn't explain or justify the shorts.

Ann Althouse,

"[Happy] seemed like a pleasant, innocuous pop song. Forgettable.

That's all it is, Darlin' - he DOES look stupid.

Still, come on - if you don't smile (HAPPY!) you can't expect me to ever get there, can you?
