YouTubers Christine Sydelko and Trisha Paytas collaborated on an iconic street performance for the ages: performing a live rendition of broadway smash Hamilton on the sidewalk.
First, the pair filmed themselves preparing for the event by meeting with a Benjamin Franklin impersonator. This part seemed to also be an homage to the episode of The Office where a Ben Franklin impersonator was hired as a stripper, but I could be reaching here. Either, way, this Franklin was flustered by the duo.
Later, they set up stage on the street and amassed a pretty big crowd while they sang and rapped over a recording of the show while sort-of dressed up in Hamilton-inspired clothes. Christine was decked out in just grey, balding wig.
A couple of people tried to interrupt to tell them to quiet down or move, but they were swiftly shut down. Trisha told one of them, “We’ve always stood out here.”
