The 56th Annual Grammy Awards

Grammy Nominees Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Cause a Scene on NYC Bus

Any given New Yorker's daily routine may involve coffee, memos, and a trip or two on public transit, but add a Grammy nominee to the mix and the concept of commute takes on a whole new meaning. Toting a boombox and a roll of toilet paper just for kicks, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis recently got the party started smack-dab in the middle of a moving NYC bus.

It's smiles all around as the hip-hop duo, who are up for seven Grammys this year including Album of the Year, make their way onto the vehicle and do their thang, all as part of the Grammy Awards' "Music Unleashes" viral video campaign, which "taps into the insight that human beings have natural, sometimes uncontrollable, visceral reactions to music."

 

In the video, which appears to have been shot with bus surveillance cameras, the toilet paper goes flying and the seemingly surprised passengers (who may or may not have been in on the stunt) get their groove on, as the duo energetically perform their megahit "Can't Hold Us." Take a break from your own daily grind and view footage of all the fun above!
