Angela Merkel Rap! – The World’s Gonna Know Her Name

Angela Merkel Rap!

Unfamiliar with the life of German Chancellor Angela Merkel or just have a weakness for cheesy broadway parodies? Even if you answer no to either of those, I still recommend checking out the latest Hamilton parody from CollegeHumor that dives into the life of one of the worlds most powerful leaders and TIME’s Woman of the Year.

CollegeHumor recently released “Angela Merkel Rap!” that runs through Merkel’s life and how she worked her way up to the power position she is in today, all set to the opening number of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton.

There is an extra significance, or at least a bit of a tie-in to the original Hamilton story, which tells the story of one of America’s founding fathers, as the parody draws comparisons to the modest early lives of both leaders and the amount of hard work that it took to rise to the top despite being political outsiders.

Okay, enough of the serious talk… just check out the video below and enjoy!
