Thousands of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Dicks burger fans converged on Capitol Hill in late July to take part in the dynamic duo’s latest video joint, “White Walls.”

“The Hill” was virtually shut down so that Macklemore & Lewis could shoot some exterior scenes for part of the video, which features Seattle’s famous Dick’s Drive-In as a backdrop. The iconic Seattle burger palace just celebrated it’s 60 year anniversary yesterday, so the timing of the release of the video couldn’t be more perfect.

Macklemore and Lewis have had a brilliant year – gaining global attention with the mega-successful release of The Heist, which has spawned several hits and garnered some MTV video awards. In addition, Macklemore, whose real name is Ben Haggerty recently graced the cover of Rolling Stone.

“White Walls” features ScHoolboy Q and Hollis (Wong-Wear) and was directed by Mackelmore & Lewis.
