It wasn’t until Macklemore and his partner and chart-topping crime Ryan Lewis hit up SNL on Saturday (March 2) night that we realized how much like a Lonely Island song “Thrift Shop” really is. Somehow, while watching Ben Haggerty flailing around in his red get-up and buckled shoes, the whole Macklemore crew — including a horn section and guest vocalists Wanz (on “Thrift Shop”) and Ray Dalton (“Can’t Hold Us”) — seemed to be at home on the show’s stage.

“We’re on live TV now!” Haggerty exclaimed jubilantly as they kicked off their second song of the night, “Can’t Hold Us.” Catch that one below, and the latest live performance of “Thrift Shop” above.
