80-Odd Years of 'Happy': Retirement Village Dances Along to Pharrell's Hit (VIDEO)

07/29/2014 AT 02:45 AM EDT

Pharrell Williams's hit "Happy" has been playing ad nauseam for almost a year now, but these senior citizens make it worth another listen.

When you hear the words "retirement community," visions of dentures, naps and early-bird dinners may dance in your head – but the main thing filling this senior living center is actual dancers.

Sixty residents and staff members of the Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch, New Zealand, collaborated to show off their best moves in this cover, "80-Odd Years of Happy." The smile-inducing clip is full of senior folks youthfully exercising, swimming, spinning and singing.

They have style, too! Pharrell's signature bow tie and hat may look even better on this video's leading man.
