Watch a New Video For Weird Al Yankovic’s ‘Hamilton Polka’ Set to the ‘Hamilfilm’

“Weird Al” Yankovic celebrated the release of the Hamilton movie over Fourth of July weekend by unveiling a new visual re-creation of his “Hamilton Polka” on Saturday (July 4).

“Hope everybody’s enjoying our great national holiday (Hamilton weekend!!!) Here’s a little video I cooked up to celebrate,” the comedian wrote on Twitter alongside the mash-up.

In the clip, “Weird Al” runs through the near entirety of the hit Broadway musical’s plot in just five minutes, transforming songs like opener “Alexander Hamilton,” “The Schyler Sisters,” “The Room Where It Happens” and “My Shot” into zany polka numbers and dubbing them over clips of the original Broadway cast’s performance in the new film.

“The Hamilton Polka” was originally released back in March 2018 as part of star Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamildrop” series, which gave artists like Sara Bareilles, Andra Day, The Regrettes and more the chance to cover songs from the show using their own signature styles.

#Hamilfilm, meanwhile, premiered on Disney+ just in time for Independence Day, after being filmed back in June 2016.
