This Hamilton and Animal Crossing mashup shouldn't work, but it totally does

Ah Hamilton. The smash hit rap musical came to Disney+ last year, bringing a whole new audience and a wave of enthusiastic tributes (even The Muppets got involved). But 2021 has just delivered a tribute we guarantee no-one was expecting – the first act of the musical performed scene-by-scene by... Animal Crossing. No, we didn't get it at first, either. 

In case you're not familiar, Animal Crossing is one of the most popular Nintendo Switch games of the moment. And an (extremely committed) Hamilton fan has brought the world to life in a whole new way, by putting the cast to work performing Hamilton. It's one of the most surreal yet hilarious (and strangely mesmerising) animated music experiences we've seen. Hamilton fans (and non-fans, actually) – don't throw away your shot at watching it below (sorry, it had to be said).
