Who’d You Rather: Thrift Shop Realness Edition

It’s been a couple of weeks since I pitted Charlie Hunnam against Alex Pettyfer. Thought I’d have a little fun with my latest Who’d You Rather match-up. If don’t understand the post title, clearly you’ve never heard of the awesomeness that is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The Seattle duo’s breakout hit, “Thrift Shop” has sold over 2.2 million copies and viewed more than 275 million times on YouTube. Their latest clip, “Can’t Hold Us” is even more epic.

Not many guys can pull of seemingly random put-together pieces from vintage stores and make it look hot. But for some reason, these two hipster poster boys pull it off and do it with massive sex appeal. I have to say, Macklemore isn’t typically my type, but there’s just something about him. Both guys not only have that white boy hip hop swagger going for them, but both are huge LGBT allies which makes them even more attractive. Their “Same Love” music video is a must-see.

If you don’t know who’s who? Macklemore, born Ben Haggerty, is the 29-year-old redhead, while Ryan Lewis is the 25-year-old brunette. Check out photos of them below and cast your vote.

    Macklemore is dog ugly. Definitely a two bagger. I’d definitely go with Ryan.
