The Bard meets Miley Cyrus - the best of 15 Second Shakespeare

Forget the Rugby World Cup, the great Bard was trending this weekend

The internet went into meltdown this weekend as a game started by actor David Fynn went viral and started trending worldwide.

Kicking off the shenanigans, Fynn posted:

This was picked up and promoted by casting director Amy Hubbard, who claimed she had 'cast a role that shoots Monday via #15secondshakespeare'.

Then, as with all great internet games (see Grumpy Cat, Harlem Shake, Ice Bucket Challenge), things kind of spiralled. Here's some of our favourite efforts:
