An anti-consumerism song worth listening to, Macklemore x Ryan Lewis "WINGS" Official Music Video

I haven't been all that big a fan of Macklemore x Ryan Lewis and personally think their thriftshop song is an insult to anyone with the ability to hear.  Still the song "Same Love" was good and it is impressive to have a hip hop artist so publicly support gay marriage and equality.  Randomly I heard another song called "WINGS" on the radio and it might be the most anti-consumerism song I have heard on commercial radio, possibly ever.

I especially enjoyed the Phil Knight reference.  It is a really great song, please check it out.
