Don Iveson Busts A Move As Edmonton Gets 'Happy' (TWEET)

Let it never be said that Edmonton's mayor can't dance.

Don Iveson stands out among several Edmontonians who busted a move as part of a music video by CTV News, which was set to Pharrell Williams's "Happy."

In the video, which was posted to the network's website on Monday, Iveson threw his hands in the air, shuffled and even moonwalked, in what was seen as a challenge to Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi.

Also featured in the video were Conservative MP Laurie Hawn; Edmonton Oilers defenceman Andrew Ference; Alberta Liberal leader Raj Sherman; and gold medal-winning curler Kevin Martin.

This is not the first time that Edmonton's mayor has become an Internet star. Iveson's sad face in reaction to a lack of funding for light rail transit (LRT) became a popular meme last March.

And the sad face seems to have worked. Just days later, then-premier Alison Redford announced $600 million in funding for the city's LRT expansion.

Who knows what a two-step could bring to the city?
