Watch Ken Griffey Jr. catch flying fish in Macklemore’s new music video

Thursday August 27th, 2015

On Thursday, Macklemore released the video for his brand new single “Downtown” and it features a cameo from another Seattle icon—Ken Griffey Jr.

The video is set in the rapper’s hometown, and features notable artists like Grandmaster Melle Mel and Kool Moe Dee, but none of them are as famous as Griffey. 

Griffey is flashing his iconic smile, but he’s doing it in unusual situations. First, he catches a fish flying through the air at the famous Pike Place Market. 

Jim Harbaugh could not believe Michael Jordan called him

Of course he’s wearing the exact outfit he donned on his 1989 Upper Deck trading card:

Then, Griffey rolls through on a motorcycle.

The video is pretty lame, but you can watch it below anyway.
