Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Surprise NYC Bus Passengers With "Can't Hold Us" Performance

Where some New Yorkers were treated to an anxiety attack thanks to the team behind Devil's Due, others were privy to having Macklemore's package thrust in their faces as they rode a bus along Broadway. 

The Grammy-nominated artist surprised NYC bus passengers along with partner-in-crime Ryan Lewis with a performance of "Can't Hold Us," all of it supposedly a "surprise" to promote the Grammy's. It's difficult to take the whole "surprise" of it all without a grain of salt, as it feels kind of staged and the time stamp on the "bus video" means that something would've leaked on social networks back in the fall. Regardless of whether it's a set-up, it's nice to see one of our Top Favorite Friends of 2013 promoting public transportation. 


Well, thanks for the information and I appreciate their performance. This is one of the benefits of public transportation. With the benefits of mass transportation now promoting is also included which is very impressive. I am in for of public transportation due to many benefits. Single transportation or commutation is very expensive and not environment friendly. Anyways, nice blog.

It was all staged, anyone can see it.  If it were real, there would have been passengers hollering about the bus driving past their stop.  Plus there were all sorts of camera shots, but never once do we see a camera. 

Are you kidding? There were cameras visible throughout the video. (You can make a very professional video with nicely shot and cut smartphone camera footage.)

Don't be a hater dear
