One day a group of UCLA students went to a football game and took a look around: everywhere they looked they saw Macklemores. And so the page "Macklemores of UCLA" was born.

The real-life rapper Macklemore is very generic-looking white guy. So you can put his distinct haircut (some call it the Hitler Youth) on any thin white guy and BOOM you have a Macklemore. The page has its own distinct lexicon. Catch a Macklemore from the back and you have a "Backlemore." Catch them having a snack and you have a "Snacklemore." So far it seems that the ultimate shot has been elusive: no Macklemores have been snapped popping tags in the nearby Westwood American Vintage.

The group behind the page told LAist, "In the past couple weeks, it's really taken off! We hope the page can provide a little bit of comic relief for UCLA students."
