Mackledad gets in touch with his inner Grouch in this "Thrift Shop" parody.

Looks like Macklemore is getting more in touch with the kids in his preparation for becoming a Mackledad. The rapper appeared on Sesame Street this week with a parody of his breakout hit "Thrift Shop", and it was... weirdly cute?

Decked out in another shabby coat and way too many ties for one man, Macklemore jams with Oscar and the other Grouches as all they get super excited about accumulating as much trash as they can. We're sure in context there's some message about the importance of recycling, or something.

We're just here for Chris' reaction throughout the whole thing.
