Pharrell Debuts Sobering “Freedom” Video: Watch
The artist had people coming together and dancing to “Happy,” from Jimmy Kimmel to members of Odd Future and folks who could be your neighbors. For “Freedom,” though, he stands among throngs of people working; either they dig at a mountaintop, or they sew inside a sweatshop. The video has other scenes, like a Lego replica of this image from the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, but those are the ones that stand out most.
Pharrell has brought people together yet again, though for entirely different, more sobering reasons. Watch his “Freedom” video up top.
