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.

"Answer Me" from The Band's Visit (Adam Kantor and Trixie)

Ulterior Motives: Three years ago, Broadway audiences learned the difference between Israel's Bet Hatikva and Petah Tikva in the film to stage Broadway musical adaptation of The Band's Visit. With a book by Itamar Moses and score by David Yazbek, the story centers around a band's arrival in a quiet Israeli town and their encounters with its residents. Such characters we meet are the captivating Dina, portrayed by Tony winner Katrina Lenk, who sings of her adoration of music and film stars in "Omar Sharif" while our Hot Clip of the Day star Adam Kantor as Telephone Guy waits for the call from his love. The musical went on to win ten Tony Awards including the coveted Best Musical for 2018.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: In a much more lighthearted version, Adam appeared in The 2018 Humane Society of New York's benefit "Best In Shows." In the event, Adam Kantor was paired with Broadway veteran of Living On Love and Bullets Over Broadway, pomeranian Trixie. Though Trixie's looks to Adam at the beginning of the song, our ultimate moment is an easy one: 2:07 - 2:16. Trixie is an acting vet!
