So lets start with the fact that this cinematic video story is genius. Lets continue with the fact that happiness is often followed by dancing – whether its a communal soul clap among friends or just cutting up on the streets of downtown l.a. The latter said example occurs right outside of Handsome Coffee Roasters in the Arts District.

You probably know where I’m going with this, yes, coffee makes me happy. But what makes me even dance-happy is the culture of coffee. This woman – at 1:46 – cutting loose in the street probably didn’t even have coffee or go into the shop and that is more than okay. But this glimpse of her near it, is an indubitable expression of how I feel every time I get to do what I love around culture and by extension through the lens of coffee.

So, I’m soul clapping in spirit as my fingers type how I love writing about what I love in the context of Pharrel’s own love of music.  That’s culture at its best! Are you dancing yet?
