Forget for a second that Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., is a civil rights icon who was beaten with other marchers on that fateful day known as Bloody Sunday.

Just watch him dance and sing along to Happy by Pharell Williams, the Oscar-nominated theme from Despicable Me 2.

"This is my song," Lewis is heard on the video. "Nothing can bring me down."

Two videos of Lewis just being happy were uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday by Rachelle O'Neil, an aide to the Georgia congressman.

Thursday happens to be International Day of Happiness.
