Macklemore & Ryan Lewis pirate ship video was a high seas nightmare

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ video for Can’t Hold Us was a messy affair because no one realised their pirate ship trip off the coast of California would become a nightmare of choppy seas and sickness.

The duo thought it would be a great idea to hire the ship for the day to shoot the promo and set sail with “about 40 extras” on board, but the mini-voyage quickly turned into a hellish journey.

In a pre-taped segment for Thursday night’s (01May14) iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles, rapper Macklemore said, “(It was all) hot chocolate and vomit. We got out to the water and there was, like, 30-foot waves, we’re, like, five hours out from the shore, everybody starts throwing up – all these random extras that we found on Craigslist… I was the sickest I’ve ever been in my life.”
