So much Funukah!
Well. It's that time of year again. When bubbies and zaydahs, papees and memehs start bulking up on ye olde chocolate money and leaving dreidels strewn about the place so that all the grandkids (whether age 3 or 33) can enjoy the festival of lights.
Yes, Chanukah is just around the corner. And thanks to one Jacob Richman in Israel, we now have a compilation of video Youtubery goodness, celebrating the holiday in music. It's worthy of a latke or two as you sit in front of your laptop or PC screen.
Richman has put together 25 cool, not-so-cool, hilarious and just plain obscure Chanukah videos by artists and personalities you've come to know and love (or loathe). Witness Bon Jovi's take on an Adam Sandler classic. Tune in for a South Parkian take on the "Dreidel Song". Watch an animated Arnold Schwartzenegger ruminate on the meaning of it all or listen to the musical surf stylings of Meshuggah Beach Party as they jam out Chanukah, Cali style.
Just some examples of the fine fun to be found here at Richman's 25 cool Chanukah Youtube videos
This could be my favourite of the bunch (though I haven't gone through them all yet). A very NBA Chanukah.
And of course the video/tune that started it all... (had to throw it in).
Happy Chanukah. Peace.
