When Macklemore needed a video for his new song, he took his grandmother out for her 100th birthday and filmed their whole day together.
The video, for Macklemore’s song Glorious, is melting cold hearts all over because of the rapper’s sweet relationship with his Grandma Helen. (It’s racked up over 12 million views already!) He surprises her at her house and tells her that they’re going to spend the day doing whatever she wants.
They hop into Macklemore’s vintage convertible and get granny some new kicks, head to the bar for some karaoke and then the arcade for some claw grabbing. Helen watches as her grandson get a new tattoo, they joy-ride in a grocery store, of course, they hit up the thrift shop and then back to Grandma’s house, where her friends are waiting to surprise her with a party, a cake and a stripper!
On YouTube, the first comment underneath the video is from Macklemore himself,
“Grandma – nothing is more Glorious than you. Happy 100th. Thank you for the Werthers Originals. The advice. And for being a part of something that I’ll treasure forever. Love Ben.”
Watch. (And just try not to tear up…)
