There are fund-raisers. There are billboards. There are catchy ads and jingles. There are subway posters. And there are commercials.

But the ever-magical Emma Watson beat-boxing alongside Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda it turns out may be the best way to bring attention to gender equality that we've seen in recent months.

Hundreds of thousands of people have already watched the video that ends with the Harry Potter star proclaiming, "I'm so embarrassed right now, I'm literally the color of a tomato."

The video was posted Thursday to Miranda's celebrity Facebook page.

Miranda, creator of the current Broadway smash hit "Hamilton," lent his free-styling skills to the "He For She" movement while sitting across from Watson on a couch and discussing feminism in honor of International Women's Day, which was earlier this week.

Watson is heavily involved in the movement, which aims to "bring together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity, for the benefit of all."
