    I Just Realized That Lin-Manuel Miranda Is A Secret Super-Fan And Omg It's So Pure

    *great job*

    So, these are the McElroy Brothers and Lin-Manuel Miranda is a HUGE fan of their comedy advice podcast, My Brother, My Brother and Me, or as the cool kids call it, MBMBaM.

    Now, obviously you know Lin-Manuel Miranda, the super talented, adorable genius who created Hamilton and is just ONE LETTER AWAY from becoming the youngest EGOT winner. Yeah, that guy.

    Anyway, if you're a fan of his, you may have noticed that he tends to do this like, half-wave half-air punch thing.

    @Lin_Manuel greatjob on the million followers 👋👋 #1MillionGifs

    If you missed this somehow (which I totally did at first guys, so I'm not judging), let me enlighten you as to what the hell is happening — he's honking an imaginary *great job* car horn.

    So, right now you're probably like, "WTF is an imaginary *great job* car horn?" Well, buckle up and LET ME TELL YOU.

    Like many other fans, Lin became obsessed with the idea and did everything he could to make the *great job* horn a reality...the only way he knew how.

    The brothers — Justin, Travis, and Griffin — are usually in awe of the depths LMM will go to for a *great job* horn.

    A FOURTH?! I'm worried that @Lin_Manuel doesn't even know he's doing it! He's more #GREATJOB than man now...

    I cannot BELIEVE the man just did a #GreatJob horn on SNL https://t.co/ikFFN3ai27

    But, they felt differently when Honda came along with this nonsense.

    Luckily, the LMM/MBMBALaM fans (why yes, that is a mouthful) took matters into their own hands.

    Now, this isn't the first time that Lin's cleverly referenced the McElroys. He paid homage to them IN A LYRIC IN HAMILTON, and then thanked them in his 2016 Tony's speech.

    I worked a very #MBMBAM-ian "Unless...UNLESS..." homage into my new musical yesterday, @JustinMcElroy @travismcelroy @griffinmcelroy

    But in this case, he's gone so far as to get other celebrities involved, such as RuPaul:

    Even Hillary Clinton is in on it:

    Can we get back to politics, please? (Great job, @HamiltonMusical.) #Grammys

    So if you ever see him doing an adorably awkward wave or posting something like this...

    Home from #Gram4Ham. *greatjob* Good night!

    ...Now you can be in on it too! 👋👋
