Watch the Macklemore video game parody ‘Game Shop’

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailby feather

The meme that is Macklemore parody videos doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon.

First there was “Oceans of Emotion,” which poked fun at Macklemore’s delivery style. Then along came “Pot Shop,” which was a well-done pro-marijuana clip. Now comes “Game Shop” from the folks at popular video game site IGN. It manages to meld two of my favorite things, local music and video games, into one very geeky clip.

Now that “Game Shop” and “Pot Shop” exist, you have to wonder what’s next … Craft Shop? Sandwich Shop? Or hey, maybe the X-rated parody video, Sex Shop, will happen.

Watch “Game Shop” above while thinking of your own clever take on “Thrift Shop.”
