How can you stan for your favorite football team while simultaneously firing shots at a rival team without facing any repercussions? If you’re rapper Macklemore, you cast really cute kids in your new music video. It’s actually kind of brilliant.
Macklemore’s latest video is for his new single feel-good single “Marmalade” featuring Lil Yachty. The video opens with a small Macklemore look-alike, who was later revealed to be Macklemore’s look a like. Mini Macklemore steals his dad’s Maybach and picks up his friends, including a small version of rapper Lil Yachty. Together the crew spend their parents money at a jewelry store before sneaking into a football stadium where they discover members of the New England Patriots football team deflating their footballs. Little Macklemore then sneaks into the dressing room and steals Tom Brady’s jersey, which he later presents to former Seattle Seahawks player Marshawn Lynch. To reward the boys for their theft, Lynch allows him to have a pool party at his mansion.
Seattle resident and longtime Seahawk’s fan Macklemore only appears in the first and last shot of the video, with Lil Yachty also making a brief appearance when he drives by the boys and almost catches them in the luxury car.
The new video was directed by Macklmore, real name Ben Haggerty, along with Jason Koenig, who has previously worked with Macklemore on his videos for “Can’t Hold Us,” “Otherside,” “Fake Empire” and “My Oh My” with Ryan Lewis.
“Mamalade” is the second single from Macklemore’s upcoming solo album, the first the rapper has released without his producing partner Ryan Lewis since 2005’s The Language Of My World. The track follows Macklemore’s lead single “Glorious,” which he released earlier this year (watch the video here).
The new video arrives just a few days after Macklemore was involved in a head-on collision in his home state of Washington. The musician was driving his 2016 Mercedes when an alleged drunk driver hit him head on in a pickup truck on Friday. Thankfully, Macklemore appears to be unharmed and the driver of the truck only has minor injuries.
