10 hilarious TikToks inspired by the Hamilton movie
When Disney+ dropped a 2016 recording of Hamilton's original Broadway cast performing the show, it immediately became an Internet sensation. Since its release on July 3, theater lovers all across the country have been streaming it and listening to the album *Non-stop* (see what I did there??). TikTok is one place that has definitely experienced hype for Hamilton as funny takes on popular trends across the app are being adapted to fit its characters. Here are some of the best Hamilton- inspired TikToks:
Funny moments you may have missed
Seeing the show in person is *a lot* different than just listening to the soundtrack, and there are tons of fun details added to the characters by their extremely talented actors! This video shows a compilation of little moments that you can't help but laugh at after watching.
King George with a face filter
Jonathan Groff's sassy portrayal of King George is absolutely hilarious from his solos to the random moments in the show where he appears to dance in the background and laugh at the chaos happening in America. Someone put a wide mouth filter on King George's singing face and honestly, it made the performance even more enjoyable.

The characters as Kourtney Kardashian quotes
One popular TikTok sound features a compilation of Kourtney Kardashian's most iconic one-liners, and someone adapted the sound to fit the main characters of Hamilton. It's pretty much spot on, and will definitely make you LOL.
Disney fans will *love* this TikTok jokingly proposing a revamp of Disney World to feature the musical in its park. What would happen if Liberty Square was no more and instead became "Alexander Hamil-Land?" Just watch this to find out!
Group project nightmare
In addition to starring as Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote and produced the entire musical. The opening credits to the filmed version show his name so often that someone created a TikTok comparing it to being assigned a group project where you end up having to do all the work because no one else finishes their part. It is exactly the kind of sarcastic humor that has become common on the app over the past several months and is also *super* relatable.
We all know from the musical's first song that Hamilton is the "10 dollar founding father without a father," and this video shows the faces of Hamilton and Jefferson on actual printed money with a filter that makes them appear to be singing their lines.
Even though we pretty much *all* hated Hamilton during "Say No To This" for cheating on Eliza (the true queen of the show, btw), the song is definitely one of the catchiest in the show. Adding an animated Kermit the Frog swaying to the rhythm takes the song in a whole new direction and is just plain funny!

Dance circle trend
The dance circle is another popular TikTok trend, where people make videos showing an iconic move or routine that they would pull out if they found themselves in the middle of a dance circle. One Hamilton fan channeled the Schuyler sisters for her take on the trend, creating this masterpiece:
Lin-Manuel Miranda working at Panera
Broadway has been shut down for several months due to COVID-19, and a TikTok has circulated joking about what it would be like if the star of Hamilton had to pick up a job at Panera Bread because of the stage closures. The creator of that TikTok nailed the epic rapping skills shown off by Lin-Manuel Miranda in the Hamilton film, and all we can say is that our ordering experience would be a lot more fun if that actually happened!
It's pretty amazing how the actors in Hamilton were able to memorize the lyrics and choreography for the entire 3-hour show, and it's even more amazing how some superfans were able to do it as well. A TikTok user took to the app to share a funny video of her lip-syncing along to the show with the caption, "I have no clue what happened all year in AP bio but somehow I know all 20,520 words of Hamilton: An American Musical." Same, girl!
