Video: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. XP - 'Brad Pitt's Cousin'
Return of the Mack. After shining a light on drug addiction in the powerful video for “Kevin,” Macklemore & Ryan Lewis return to “Downtown” fun with the release of “Brad Pitt’s Cousin,” a rambunctious and carefree visual off their latest album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made.
Rapping on an airplane, riding a bike, and walking around in a panda suit, Macklemore delivers rhymes about his cat’s Instagram account, eating chicken wings and onion rings, and smiling throughout. Watch for the fun moments and catch his baby daughter Sloane’s adorable cameo.

Directed by Mitchell Overton and John Peterson, “Brad Pitt’s Cousin” also features hilarious outtakes at the end. It was the same fun spirit that helped the duo craft the single with guest Xperience in the first place.
“We were just fucking around, pretty much freestyling,” XP told Genius last month. “I was saying some funny shit. Ryan Lewis was like, ‘Yo, for the hook, we want something that’s gonna bang in the club. We should do something like you go to the club and try to get in by saying you’re Brad Pitt’s cousin. Like nobody really knows who Macklemore is.’ I started saying, ‘All the Angelinas, if you got it let me see it.’ And he started flipping. Like, ‘Yo, we gotta lay that down!'”
