“Indy is Happy” integrates and features some of the elements that make Indianapolis a great place to visit, work, and live; highlighting the sights, sounds, and people.  The video also includes local celebrity, Indianapolis Colts mascot, Blue, as he makes a cameo appearance.

“The song lends itself to high energy and fun, it makes you want to dance. You put that with the city of Indianapolis, which I think is a fun city, and people that love it, and you have the perfect ingredients for a viral video. There are thousands of “happy” videos being created all over the world, and Indianapolis is one of them,”said Brown.
