MANILA - You just can't keep a Filipino down.

Months after "Yolanda" struck, a YouTube user has uploaded a video of the survivors of one of the worst natural disasters to hit the country breaking out in dance to "Happy" from the movie "Despicable Me 2."

The new video, uploaded on Tuesday, is filled to the brim with children and volunteers clapping around the jubilant, toe-tapping track by Pharrell Williams, amid the destruction brought about by the super typhoon.

As of writing, the video titled "Pharrell Williams - Happy - Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan" has almost 10,000 views and counting, with several users praising the strength of the survivors.

Directed and uploaded by Quentin Musset, the video was a joint project with the United Nations Development Programme Philippines and was filmed in the city of Tacloban.
