“Batlexander Manilton” – This Batman/Hamilton Parody will Break the Internet
The internet has permission to explode now. America’s favorite (fully grown) boy genius, Lin-Manuel Miranda, just tweeted about America’s saddest superhero.
YouTubers Turtle Cameron recently released a Batman/Hamilton parody called “Batlexander Manilton,” and it’s even better than it sounds. If you’re wondering – yes, a man in a Batman costume sings the lyric “Batlexander Manilton” in a sad, low croon. Yes, the Joker in this universe is Aaron Burr. Yes, you can add Commissioner Gordon to your list of Dads Who Remind Us of George Washington.
It’s a 2016 miracle. We’ve been given 4 minutes and 21 seconds of perfectly timed and rhymed Batman lyrics set to the opening number from Hamilton.
