Addicted to Hamilton? #Hamilaria is real, and there is help


“Hamilton” is nothing short of a cultural epidemic, having infected basically every corner of pop culture, from Amy Schumer skits to Emma Watson’s playlist.

But if your obsession isnegatively affecting your life, there’s help.

“Hamilaria” is defined as “the uncontrollable urge to sing lyrics from the hit musical ‘Hamilton’ when prompted by cue lines from everyday conversation.” In a hilarious new infomercial, a behavioral “clinic” claims to have developed a way to moderate this response — and maybe get you accepted back into your social circle.
