Macklemore’s going beyond the thrift shop searching for bargains.

The rapper recently visited Sesame Street and joined up with the Grouches to find the most disgusting pieces of trash around. It’s a parody of “Thrift Shop” that could double as a commentary for how some people feel about the original. It’s at least a year late but no less enjoyable, as Macklemore is fully willing to poke fun at himself.

After all, one man’s trash is another grouch’s outfit.
