There ain't no song high enough to keep Pentatonix at bay. The Sing-Off winners have covered every song under the sun, and their latest effort is just as incredible as the last. Taking on Pharrell Williams' ubiquitous "Happy," lifted from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, the glorious five-some give the track a cool, vibrant re-imagining, finger snapping and all!

"We are HAPPIER than ever to release this new video tomorrow!" the group teased to their Twitter followers on Sunday (March 16).

Previously, the band, comprised of Scott Hoying, Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan and Kevin Olusola, has gone viral with covers of a Daft Punk medley, Evolution of Beyonce, A Great Big World's "Say Something" and Lorde's "Royals," among many, many others.

Last fall, Pentatonix dropped their second album, titled PTX: Volume 2, primarily a collection of covers. First-week sales stood tall at 31,000, leading the group to its best start to-date and bowing at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart. This success follows their Volume 1, which started at No. 14 with 18,000 copies in 2012. A holiday set followed that winter, reaching No. 45 with 12,000.

As fans recall, the uber-talented group first rose to fame on the hit NBC show in 2011. During their run, PTX placed no fewer than 11 tracks in the Top 10 on the iTunes single chart. Plus, their YouTube channel has become the hub of the internet, racking up millions upon millions of views and carving out their own niche in the industry.
