Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"Hard To Be The Bard" (Christian Borle and the cast of Something Rotten!)

Ulterior Motives: April 23rd is National Talk Like Shakespeare Day in honor of William Shakespeare's B-Day! We decided to pump up the volume on one of our favorite Shakespeares - Tony winner Christian Borle (the other Will being Mr. Adam Pascal). Christian appeared in a performance at The White House with his Something Rotten! cast mates in 2015 to perform this song bemoaning how difficult it was being a beloved, famous writer. Thou dost love this recorded performance heartily!

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Wow do we love Christian's rock star moment at 2:27 with the mic stretch and the patter section that follows.
