Considering Hamilton's massive success, it's no surprise Amy Schumer and her sister, Inside Amy Schumer producer Kim Caramele, would count themselves among the Broadway sensation's fans. But the duo took things to another level in a new video, pitching Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda on a straight up knockoff.

In the new clip, Schumer tricks Miranda into visiting her at a dance studio, where she proceeds to pitch him on Betsy Ross the musical. It's a lot like Hamilton, but much worse. She even drags her sister into the mess and the Roots' Questlove even makes a cameo.

Schumer and Caramele explained the sketch's origin to Entertainment Weekly, saying it came to them while they were walking to work one day. Caramele started singing "I’m not throwing away my mop," (a play on the show's song "My Shot") and from there the fake musical Betsy Ross was born. 

Inside Amy Schumer's fourth season starts April 21 on Comedy Central.
