Macklemore pops tags at WinCo in new video

Seattle-born rapper Macklemore wanted to celebrate his grandma’s 100th birthday.

So he surprised her with a day on the town in Modesto, CA.  In his new music video Glorious, the pair egged a house together, shopped for some shoes, hit up the local arcade… and popped some tags at WinCo Foods.

The rapper is seen driving the mart karts with granny and looking at magazines at the Modesto location of the Boise-based retailer.

The video is #6 on YouTube trending today – so WinCo’s signature green & orange interior is getting in front of a lot of eyeballs.

Modesto resident Patrice Parks told the Modesto Bee about what she saw at her local WinCo during filming in June: 

 “You know it was one of those days where I didn’t want to leave the house, but I said I’ve got to go to the store,” Parks said. “But you don’t expect to go to WinCo and find a celebrity. It’s Modesto, you never see this kind of stuff happen. But it was really amazing.”
