Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ video for “Can’t Hold Us” won the Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video at Sunday night’s VMAs, beating out Drake’s “Started From the Bottom,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools,” J. Cole’s “Power Trip” and A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems.” The award is another milestone for the Seattle duo, whose trendy ode to frugality, “Thrift Shop,” was an unexpected commercial hit last summer. The video for “Can’t Hold Us” is a multifaceted journey through several time zones. Macklemore leads a camel through a quiet neighborhood street and rhymes on a pirate ship. He skydives and lands on the Seattle Space Needle. In other words, it has everything.
