Video: Pentatonix Covers “Thrift Shop” [2/12]

We’re a little late to the party here, but we don’t even care. We are huge fans of awesome song covers here at Surviving College, and when we find one, we just have to share. Especially when the cover is better than the original (even more when the original was freakin’ awesome to begin with!) And there’s something even more special about a capella covers of already amazing songs – there’s a reason Pitch Perfect was so fabulous (and not just because Skylar Astin and Anna Kendrick are awesome…)

Much like we are now in love with Walk Off The Earth (okay, okay, who isn’t in love with WOTE by now?) We just found Pentatonix‘s most recent video, an AMAZINGLY mind-blowing a capella cover of “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. We’re already obsessed with the song because it’s totally fun, but we might just have to play this cover on repeat for a few…hours…or days, or something. We’re not sure it’ll ever get old. One thing is for sure, it’s not long enough! But that’s only because Pentatonix had to chat about something really cool at the end – they’re going on tour! If you love this video as much as we do, be sure to check out their website to score some tickets. And we’ll be super jealous if you go, just saying.

Check out the video below and try not to be blown away (yeah, that’s not possible…)
