Shakespeare's classic comedy like you've never seen it before...

After all the fun we had last year turning Romeo and Juliet into YouTubers, our friends at the Royal Shakespeare Company have come back once again and asked us to help get the word out about their new production of The Taming Of The Shew.

We put our heads together and whipped up 'The Taming Of The Shrewtubers', a truly modern twist on this Shakespeare classic. We reimagined this Shakespearean comedy about a man trying to 'tame' an unruly potential wife as the tale of two YouTubers - one wild, one normal, and their attempts to work together.

In celebration of the RSC's groundbreaking gender-reversed production of the play, we also swapped the genders in our video, to help take this story to places it has truly never been before.

So get ready to watch the adventures of 'model YouTuber' Petruchio as she attempts to rein in infamous influencer Katherine. Will she succeed? You'll have to watch to find out.

There are pranks, plenty of cheeky in-jokes for Shakespeare fans, and we even got to film on the Royal Shakespeare Company stage (thanks RSC!) But we shouldn't say any more so we don't spoil the video for you. Check it out above!
