Producer Marshmello released a new video for his song ‘Happier’ featuring Bastille.
The video starts at a birthday party where a little girl gets dog which becomes her best friend automatically. Throughout the video, we see the girl growing up and sharing some of her key life moments with her companion. We eventually get to experience her high school days where she gets bullied by all the mean girls in her school and finds comfort with her dog who feels that she’s sad and puts her paw on her. The dog gets sick and has to be taken down, which turns into a very emotional video as the teenage girl loses her best friend. Years pass and and she learns how to mourn the loss of her best friend as eventually, she gifts a dog to her own child.
When sharing the video, Marshmello wrote this on his post:
When Bastille sent me the vocals to Happier for the first time, I was taken back. The amount of emotion that you could feel in the lyrics was crazy. As I listened and worked on the song more and more, it reminded me of so many things I’ve been through in my life. Toxic relationships, letting go of things I didn’t want to, and just situations where happiness came with a sacrifice. Recently I lost my best friend, my companion, my life long friend. I wanted this video to embrace the pain that we feel losing or sacrificing something and the cycle of life that comes with it. I hope this song and video can bring closure in any situation you may be and make us all happier 💗
