It's pretty big here, but I don't know if that's just because Macklemore is a Seattle artist or if it's big everywhere. At least the Seattle press thinks it's big everywhere.
Last week, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's "Thrift Shop" became the top-selling single in the United States, the first rap record from Seattle to reach that position since "Baby Got Back."- Mudede, Charles. "Seattle Saves Hiphop, Again." The Stranger [Seattle] 30 Jan. 2013
Anyway, it's a cute song. And the video is funny. I like it.
And now there's a cute parody by "Barklemore." Instead of the thrift shop, he's been adopted.
It's good for a smile on a cloudy day, like today.
"Thrift Shop" ends with a voice asking "Is that your grandma's coat?"
The dog parody ends with the new owner asking "Is that your winter coat?" Aaawww.
