CDZA, a group into experimentation of the musical video variety, parodied songs from popular musicals including: Rent, Cats, Hair, West Side Story and Les Miserables, among others.

The story is narrated by 3 blonde sopranos who graduated from Carnegie Mellon University, according to their profiles.

The simple production takes place in a single room but the group said on their website they hired miniature makers to build an authentic Facebook profile, and they close with a Playbill featuring the infamous billionaire.

The video is one of CDZA’s ongoing viral video series, including a mashup of a History of Lyrics that Aren’t Lyrics.
