An easy way of creating a viral video is to combine one of the most successful athletes of all time and one of the best musicals to ever hit broadway. 

That's what online media company Dose did this week when they created "LeBron: The Musical".

The video took the title song from "Hamilton: The Musical" and catered the lyrics to describe LeBron's decorated career and it unsurprisingly went viral this week and even caught the attention of James himself.

"It's great," James said. "It's unbelievable, actually."

The piece opens up with an actor dressed as Stephen Curry - dressed in a full Golden State Warriors uniform, Under Armour sneakers and a mouthguard hanging from his mouth - narrating LBJ's life.

"How do you block him, stop him, run out the clock on the sportsman, four-time MVP with more time on the court?" he sings. "As a freshman, the best of them. Gets celebrated, then hated, then back and fully decorated."

There were also actors dressed as Dwyane Wade in both a Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat uniform, Chris Bosh in a Heat jersey, Kyrie Irving in a Cleveland uniform and Michael Jordan in a suit sporting six championship rings on his fingers. 

The actor who plays King James has many costume changes as he goes from his high school uniform, to the shirt he wore for 'The Decision' and then the all black outfit he donned for the cover of Sports Illustrated when he announced his return to The Land.

"It was basically the whole journey, up until this point," James said. "So, obviously they've done their homework and they were pretty much spot on. And the visuals were pretty cool too. You know, all the different characters and different uniforms and different jerseys and things of that nature.

"I've done something right up until this point with my career to see someone be able to take the time out of their days to do something like that. It's pretty cool."
