Hamilton Star Leslie Odom Jr. Recreates Famous GOT MILK? Commercial

If you weren’t able to make it down to the Public Theatre to see the uber talent that is Leslie Odom Jr. in Lin-Miranda‘s latest musical, Hamilton-– no worries it’s coming to Broadway this summer. (You’ve been given another shot).

The team behind the Hamilton machine has put together a parody video of a classic 1993 Got Milk? ad that put the famous phrase on the map. In the original commercial—directed by Michael Bay— a radio-listener who is a history fanatic, has his mouth stuffed with peanut butter and couldn’t articulate the answer to an on-air contest question: Who shot Alexander Hamilton? With no milk to wash down the peanut butter, he missed out on winning $10,000.

Watch Odom’s almost shot-by-shot reenactment of the commercial here:
