This Batman/Hamilton Mashup—Called “Batlexander Manilton,” of Course—Is Actually Good

If you’ve spent the past few months listening to the Hamilton soundtrack while feverishly clicking through online ticket lotteries and praying to effigies of Lin-Manuel Miranda in the hopes of one day actually seeing the show, now you can get one step closer, kind of: by watching Batlexander Manilton.

In a mashup that is way better than it has any right to be, the lyrics of Hamilton’s opening rap are cleverly transformed into an ode about Batman, who you might have heard has a new movie out. The wordsmithing is impressive, and all told, Ben Affleck probably likes this treatment a lot better than some other recent mashups.
