Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have created a hilarious (and hilariously true) song that's all about how awesome it is to buy used stuff at the thrift store. A far cry from the usual label-dropping that happens on hip-hop songs and in videos, it's both a commentary on the silliness of 'luxury labels' and a celebration of pre-loved clothes. It's not new, but with more than 275 million views, it's got staying power (and hey, I just saw it, so I thought I'd share). The lyrics are definitely NSFW (not suitable for work) — or kids, if you don't want them to hear curse words — but there's nothing really dirty happening in the song, just plain old goofiness and how damn money-saving and fun it can be to shop at the thrift store, even if you only have $20 in your pocket. (And the most eco-friendly clothes are ones that are used!)

My favorite lines from this very funny song have to be: 

I'll wear your granddad's clothes

I look incredible

I’m in this big ass coat 

From that thrift shop down the road

I wear your granddad's clothes (Damn right)

I look incredible (C'mon!)

I’m in this big ass coat (Big ass coat)

From that thrift shop down the road
