Tune in and turn up

The chances of you getting stuck in an elevator with your own song playing in the background are very slim to none, but for Pharrell Williams, that exact situation happened to him on Thursday.

Visiting the Grove in LA for the premiere of his new Netflix animated series True and the Rainbow Kingdom, Pharrell Williams was delayed because he got stuck in an elevator for nearly 30 minutes.

“Ironically, [his song] ‘Happy’ was playing on the sound system. He was with his security team and about 12 other people,” according to a source that told Page Six. “He kept calm and collected until the fire department arrived. They never got the door fully open, so everyone had to climb though the door to get out,” the source added.

While he was unfazed by the situation upon hitting the stage, Pharrell expressed “Well, we were stuck in the elevator, but now I’m here. It was hot in there!”

Also, next month we’ll see the release of Pharrell’s adidas Tennis Hu Solid Pack.
