Lin-Manuel Miranda Plays ‘Taste Buds’: Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition


We’re back with
Lin-Manuel Miranda, and so you’re about
to go to Puerto Rico to do Hamilton again. Yes. And you have to learn
all of those words again. Yes. You’re raising money for– We’re raising money
for artists and arts organizations in Puerto Rico. So it’s called the Flamboyan
Arts Foundation, and basically all the proceeds
from the production– the goal is to raise $15
million for arts in Puerto Rico. That’s fantastic. [APPLAUSE] Puerto Rico. We want to help you raise
some money for Puerto Rico. And since– you say it so– Puerto Rico. I have a lifetime of practice. I see. And since it was
just Thanksgiving, we’re going to do a special
leftovers-themed edition of Taste Buds. And here’s how this works. We have 10 covered
dishes over here. We’re going to blindfold
you, and you’re going to have 60 seconds to
identify what you’re tasting. If you can– each one is
worth $2,000 for the charity. What is the exact charity? It’s called the
Flamboyan Arts Fund. OK. Yeah. All right. Wonderful. So and then, it’s
$2,000 per dish. And I will bring– first of all, I
will blindfold you. OK. [CHEERING] All right. So you’re going to
put it in front of me, and I just kind of– Yeah. Just kind of– Dive in. Yeah. You don’t want to touch it. Put your hands behind your
back, and then just lean in. All right. Lean down. Oh. Lean down. Keep going. Keep going. All righty. That’s gravy. That is gravy. That’s right. Now all right. That’s cranberry sauce. That is cranberry sauce! Now all righty. That’s mashed potatoes. That’s mashed potatoes. $6,000 so far. Head on down. Hmm. Is that stuffing? Croutons. Yes. Croutons. Oh, that was the table. What is this? That is not the table. Pumpkin pie! That is pie! [CHEERING] All righty. Cornbread? Corn soup? It is corn. It’s creamed corn. OK. Yes. I’m Puerto Rican. We don’t have creamed corn. All right. That was whatever that was. We’re going to round it up. Shutterfly wants to help
charities like yours, so they’re going to
run it up to $20,000. Oh! Mary Poppins Returns– Yeah! –opens in theaters
December 19th. We’ll be right back.

  1. wow, remember way back when he presented the idea of Hamilton at the white house? i dont think anyone(but him obviously) believed that it would be anything. turned out to be a hit and put his name on the map. and now he's doing great things

  2. Lin loves Puerto Rico so much that he's willing to do anything for it no matter how ridiculous he looks

    Learn from this man, kiddos

  3. Aaaaand now we probably won’t have it because of another strike against the government.
    The thought was nice tho. We puertoricans, especially ya theater and arts junkies were definitely looking forward to it even though most of us couldn’t purchase the tickets. Siiiiigh.

  4. I’m sure she wasn’t trying to be offensive or anything, but all I could think of when she pointed out how Lin said Puerto Rico was that clip of Trump making fun of Puerto Rico.

  5. THIS MAN IS SO ENERGETIC IT MAKES ME HAPPY NO MATTER WHAT MOOD IM IN I JUST GOT TURNED DOWN BY SOME GIRL I R E A L L Y LIKED AND LIN MADE ME FEEL BETTER

  6. Applause, applause, applause! Very proud of this BORICUA! SOOOO beauty, in and out, and so honest and transparency. That explain this blinding brightness emerging from him.
