Too happy to be taken seriously; happy to a cheesy or campy extent. Comes from the R.E.M. song Shiny Happy People.
I hated that movie's shiny happy portrayal of high school. In reality, it's a living nightmare for some people.

A so-called "normal" person who shuns the feelings the rest of us have, stigmatizes our solutions, and would take away our right to self-terminate, calling us selfish or immature or incapable of deciding our own destinies.
He was totally going to bleed to fruition, but some shiny-happy found him and called 911. Now he'll be in therapy making other shiny-happies feel good about themselves.
