The difference between happiness and joy is, with joy there is an inner response that is built up over a long period of time to manifest a sense of well being and satisfaction. Happiness is a short term emotion of content or pleasure that results in physical action. E.g.:

Joy – A loved one saying they are proud of you for something.

Happiness – A person buys an iPhone and they’re happy for a day, but after that it becomes nothing but a piece of metal that you use.

Adverts and companies aim at our happiness in possessions (clothes, cars etc), and information ( Scrobbler, Google etc). What struck me about the first video (Who-Fu: Tones of Everyday) was how simple the ideas were, how quirky the interaction between the people on the webcam were, coupled with a light jazzy piece.
