(Radio.com) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have followed up the budget-minded clip for their breakout song "Thrift Shop" by making a full 180-degree turn with an epic music video for their new single, "Can't Hold Us" featuring guest vocalist Ray Dalton.

Opening with Macklemore tromping through a snowy landscape carrying a flag bearing his most recent album title, The Heist, the grandiose clip includes scenes aboard a giant pirate ship, traveling across a desert by camel, through a field (atop a living room set being towed by a classic pickup truck) and on a beach.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis make sure get in on the fun, with one shot of Lewis leaping from a second story window into the waiting arms of fans below, and other featuring Macklemore rapping while standing on the hands of a large swarm of people.

The clip culminates with Macklemore himself parachuting onto his hometown Seattle's legendary Space Needle, where he plants the massive flag bearing The Heist album title.

"It seems like when a music video comes out, the title that receives all of the credit and travels with a film is that of the director," Ryan Lewis says in a "note" that's attached to the new video , going on to say that at least seven people are responsible for the "Can't Hold Us" clip.
