  1. “But both CBS and the state of California told us we can’t be nude on the crosswalk. Then again, people told me Alexander Hamilton wasn’t a Puerto Rican rapper with beautiful brown eyes 👀”
    – Lin

  4. I… I…Lin..I …butt…I ….hot.. I….every..thing…front side please…..jumponmycarnakedpleaseohmygod….. I..MMMMMM

  5. If you wanna see how fake these things are after all the editing, go to the 4:25 mark on this video, and then go check out the 6:12 mark on the Sound of Music video that was made a year later.

  6. “I’ve seen Hamilton 20 times!” …
    James: “That’s bs you haven’t got that sort of funds!”
    Me: Cracking up!

  7. casually just going to get a coffee and stops at a red light ahhh im so excited for this normal day an- naked lin jumps onto the car 0-0 oh hi lin didnt see you there-

  9. No ones going to mention Lin’s I will think about that face when James suggested an orgy

  10. It made my day when Lin-manwell Muranda started to sing Aquarius because I’m in Aquarius ♒️ and Iove Lin-manwell Miranda
