Allow us to introduce you to your new favorite pop song. Or, perhaps no introduction is needed. After all, Macklemore's "Downtown" has exploded across the internet since it was released last week.
Featuring a motorcycle customized with a moose head, a chariot driven by Royal Enfields, and rap legend Kool Moe Dee on a Vespa, "Downtown" is a delightfully strange ode to the joy of scooters and motorcycling.
With an instantly singable chorus and lyrics like, "You don't need an Uber, you don't need a cab / F**k a bus pass; you got a moped, man!", the song and its video have drawn a huge amount of attention since it was released on 27 August.
That popularity is only set to increase after the song was performed live at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. If you haven't seen the video, watch it here:
