There's been no shortage of Hamilton spoofs and parodies in the seven years since the juggernaut hit the Broadway stage. From Muppetesque performances to Weird Al polkas, the popular Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda has had its words and tunes twisted in every which way, even spawning an entire Off-Broadway (now touring) show.
And now the viral YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading is in the mix. Launched in 2011, the comedy series uses video clips of political speeches, songs, sports footage, and films, for example, and does what its title implies...overdubs them with a really bad lip reading dialogue. In its latest production, "Alexander Hamilton" becomes "Axe-Assassin Albertson." Don't worry, though—it's LMM approved.
