Macklemore Can Blow a Shofar Really Well

This Sunday, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are coming to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to perform their hit “Same Love” and, likely, to win some Moonmen.

But first, in their new promotional video, the Seattle duo gets us excited for their concert with the Beastie Boys “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” and, obviously, some Shofar melodies. What the what? Why is Macklemore blowing the tribe’s ram horn into the clear blue sky as a ragtag team of hipsters follows him through a field? We really don’t know. But it’s kind of great, so we won’t ask too many questions.

Maybe if we’re nice he’ll play at our synagogue.
