This Mashup Of 'High School Musical' And 'Hamilton' Really Has Its Head In The Game

This YouTuber definitely didn't miss their shot.

With the peppy, upbeat songs in "High School Musical" and the hip-hop style of "Hamilton," you'd think the two popular musicals would have nothing in common. Well, you'd be wrong.

YouTube user huffley6 overlayed the soundtrack from Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical over scenes from "HSM," and it synchs up surprisingly well. Who knew?

Using the song "My Shot," huffley6 cast Zac Efron (Troy Bolton) as Alexander Hamilton and Corbin Bleu (Chad Danforth) as Aaron Burr, which is quite interesting, given that Burr shot and ultimately killed Hamilton during a duel. Somehow, I doubt Disney will have Chad offing his BFF Troy anytime soon. Or ever.

Later in the video, Troy-as-Hamilton goes on a life reflecting moment during the song, featuring the ~iconic~ dance moves from "High School Musical 2." Oh, you know what I'm talking about here.

The song choice is perfect, since "My Shot" is about seeing your chance and taking it whenever you can — not unlike what Troy does when he tries out for the musical.

Moreover, Miranda saw the video and gave his approval. (As he should, because it's downright amazing.)
