In a new promo video for the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, ‘Thrift Shop’ musicians Macklemore and Ryan Lewis use a Jewish shofar to summon music fans to follow them through the forest and into the awards ceremony.

So, why did Macklemore choose to blow the traditional ram’s horn? Are they secretly Jewish? No. This was confirmed in April when a Twitter user asked the ‘Same Love’ singer directly.

“RT @morgaaaann: @macklemore are you Jewish or what <- nah. Just got hella good Jewish homies”

Perhaps it’s a shout out to the upcoming Jewish High Holidays? Maybe they just liked the shape of the instrument? Who knows? Either way, it’s a great promo. Watch below.
