‘Raft the Grand Canyon’ Music Video Is So Nerdy It’s Hip

In what could be described as a millennial version of Weird Al in the wild, a band of jolly river rats sing, dance, and raft the Grand Canyon.

Floating wings, technicolor vuvuzelas and thrift store ball gowns live up to that parody riff from “Burn the House Down.” The music video follows the nature nerds as they hike, kayakraft, paddle boardand blunder in “Raft the Grand Canyon”.

It’s a light-hearted, unapologetic celebration of summer at the Canyon. In addition, it’s a great atmosphere to start your weekend off right.

Audience Warning: The Song will be get stuck in your head, maybe forever.
