ABERDEEN, Wash. - The local tall ship, Lady Washington is now featured in an award-winning music video. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won two Moonmen for "Can't Hold Us" at the MTV music video awards last night in the Best Hip-Hop Video, and Best Cinematography catagories.
In the video, Macklemore leads a camel through a quiet neighborhood street and rhymes on a pirate ship. He later skydives and lands on the Seattle Space Needle. The video was also nominated for Best Direction and Best Editing.
Earlier this summer the Seattle artist released a youtube video praising the Aberdeen, Wash.-based vessel for its education programs for young people and featuring outtakes from “Can’t Hold Us.” In the PSA, the Seattle-based Macklemore asks viewers to support Lady Washington with an online donation.
