Clemson Tigers football coach Dabo Swinney is hoping to inspire alumni to return to campus later this month for the school's homecoming weekend festivities, centered around the Tigers taking on the Syracuse Orange.

And what better way to motivate your fan base than having Swinney dance and sing along with Pharell's summer hit "Happy".

Members of the student body join Swinney throughout the video, although university president Dr. Jim Clements is spared the indignity of having to sway along to the mega-hit in his final message to fans.
