The Red Army Choir has released a cover of the Pharrell Williams song Happy.

Members of the famous Russian choir appear in uniform, jamming to the tune, apparently as part of their mandate to provide some cheer to the army's rank and file heading into the new year.

A video of the relatively slick production, now one of nearly 2,000 covers of the hit song released around the world, was uploaded to YouTube three days ago.
