James Corden and TikTok Just Made Thanksgiving a Little More Theatrical

Move over, Ratatouille the Musical, there’s a new TikTok musical in town. During Tuesday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, host James Corden tapped TikTok creator Daniel Mertzlufft, the mind behind the Broadway versions of “New York Summer” and Ratatouille, for a special Thanksgiving creation. Taking on the role of a college kid who’s been stuck at home for eight months, Mertzlufft sang about how much of a “hot mess” the holiday meal usually is. Joining him as the rest of the family were Broadway legends Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Audra McDonald, Josh Gad, and Josh Groban. Is casting McDonald as the smoke alarm, Gad as the turkey, and LuPone as the saucy granny the best thing to happen this holiday season? Absolutely, and I need a full-length version of this musical immediately. If you need to add a little chaos to your Thanksgiving, you can check out the full video above.
