‘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.

Floaty wings, technicolored vuvuzelas, and thrift store prom dresses are par for the course in this parody riff of “Burn the House Down.” The music video follows the nature nerds as they hike, kayak, raft, paddleboard, and goof around in “Raft the Grand Canyon.”

It’s a lighthearted, shamelessly silly celebration of summertime at the Canyon. Plus, it’s a great vibe to get your weekend started off right.

Audience warning: the song will get stuck in your head, perhaps forever.

Runtime: 3.5 minutes
