For a duck, The Duck has certainly demonstrated an admirable ability to be a chameleon. Oregon’s iconic mascot has been a skydiver, the central character in one of the internet’s most widely viewed “Gangnam Style” parodies and a hopeful U.S. presidential candidate (among other things).

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis — whose October album, “The Heist,” reached gold status in April — performed in Eugene on Saturday night. Their stop in Oregon included a photo op with The Duck in the bowels of Matthew Knight Arena, for which The Duck saw fit to don a fur coat as Macklemore is known to do.
Being a Seattle duo, it only makes sense if Macklemore and Ryan Lewis afford the same opportunity to Washington’s Harry the Husky the next time they play a show back home.
