Rep. John Lewis

Pharrell’s “Happy” has struck again.

The kids from Detroit suddenly have viral video competition from Rep. John Lewis, the civil rights icon and last surviving organizer of the 1963 civil rights march on Washington.

The congressman was enjoying a belated birthday celebration at his Atlanta office when staffers put on “Happy,” a song they say Lewis can’t get enough of.

“This my song,” he said at one point as he shimmied around like somebody’s great-uncle at the family barbecue. (He could teach Billy Dee a few lessons.)

Look at him go, here.
