Macklemore, Ryan Lewis jam on Bronx bus

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A new video stunt (this one promoting the Grammys) features duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performing their hit song "Can't Hold Us" on an "MTA" bus in the Bronx as purportedly surprised commuters get in on the beat, according to a post on HollywoodReporter.com.

The video appears to be shot using several cameras, including some installed on the bus itself and some held by people on board. Shows them boarding the bus, paying the fare, turning on a boom box, and then rapping.

At first riders act surprised, but then they join in and clap, sing, and jam. Even the bus driver gets in on the action and fist-bumps one of the rappers as they get off the bus.

Yeah, sure.

The bus in the video closely resembles an MTA bus but the agency's logos are blurred out.

It's part of an ad campaign for the Grammys called "Music Unleashes Us," according to THR.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
