The crowd went wild as Macklemore arrived, hanging out the window of a Cadillac, and performed on the roof of Dick's Drive-in.
News of the event spread through social media and police had to hold back the crowd with barricades.
KOMO reports the music video is for the duo's "White Walls" song, a reference to Macklemore's Cadillac and its tires.
Macklemore grew up on Capitol Hill, where the burger joint is located. The owners of the drive-in welcomed the publicity.
The production lasted until 1 a.m. Thursday.
