When Macklemore‘s grandmother told him she wanted to do it all for her 100th birthday, he made sure that happened. The rapper surprised his grandma, Helen, on her 100th birthday and filmed the entire thing and transformed it so it is now the video for his new single, “Glorious,” featuring Skylar Grey. And TBH, we’re not sure what’s more glorious — Granny Helen or the close relationship these two share.
Macklemore promises Helen that they can do whatever she wants and girlfriend isn’t playing. Over the course of the magical day, Mack and Helen egg a house, sing karaoke, play Skee-ball in an arcade, ride scooters around the supermarket and try on wigs and get pimped out.
Macklemore also buys Helen a fresh pair of Yeezys when her regular orthopedic shoes won’t cut it, and hires a stripper for her and her girlfriends, while he barbecues and gets her giant slab of a birthday cake ready, proving even further he’s the #bestgrandsonever.
But it’s their time driving around in a classic convertible that will have you aspiring to be this fun now, and only dreaming of being this cool and gorgeous at 100. Happy birthday, Helen. You deserved it all.
