Adam Sandler Debuts "Chanukah Song Part 4"
Before his days of bombarding the box-office with disasters such as Jack And Jill and Grown Ups 2, Adam Sandler actually had a side of him that the world enjoyed. In December 1994 while a featured player on Saturday Night Live, Sandler debuted what would become a holiday classic for Jewish people all over the world, "The Chanukah Song". The song saw Sandler name dropping fellow Jews, sympathising with non-gentile children who may have felt left out of Christmas songs and celebrations.
As the years passed, Sandler went on to release two additional chapters of his "Chanukah Song", one in 1999, the other in 2002 (the same year in which he released the holiday film, Eight Crazy Nights). The two sequels featured updated lists of Children of Israel, the latter also featuring a surprise cameo from none other than Rob Schneider, along with a children's' choir dubbed "The Drei-Dels":
It's been 15 long years since the release of a new "Chanukah Song", leaving many people clueless, alone, without laughter and most importantly, wondering which popular celebrities also partake in the Festival of Lights?
Ask no more! Today, video has emerged of the long awaited fourth chapter of the "Chanukah Song"! Debuted last month at an event hosted by Judd Apatow in New York City, the new version name drops some of Hollywood's most beloved bubbala's including Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("enjoys eating kugel"), Scarlett Johansson ("talk about a cultured crush"), and even former Subway spokesperson, Jared Fogel ("fuck, a Jew!").
While no concert footage was found from its NYC debut, Happy Madison (Sandler's production company) uploaded a video from a recent Sandler performance at the San Diego Civic Theatre performing part 4 of the "Chanukah Song" onto YouTube:
Does this live up to the originals? Peep the video above and the lyrics below to decide for yourself:
Put on your yarmulke, here comes Chanukah It’s so much fun-akkah to celebrate Chanukah
Chanukkah is the Festival of Lights, Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.
When you feel like the only kid in town without a Christmas tree, Here’s the fourth list of people who are Jewish, just like Jesus, Olaf, Punky Brewster, Judd Apatow, Scott Rudin, and me!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt enjoys eating kugel So does Stan Lee, Jake Gylleenhaal, and the two guys who founded Google Adam Levine wears a Jewish star So does Drake and Seth Rogen Goldberg has a gold yarmulke to match the belt he wore from Hulk Hogan
We got Scarlett Johansson, talk about a cultured crush And if you need a hotter voice to turn you on, how about getting it from Lost? We may not have a cartoon of a reindeer that can talk But we also don’t have polio, thanks to Dr. Jonas Salk
Put on your yarmulke, it’s time for Chanukah Harry Potter and his magic wandi-kah, celebrate Chanukah
Jared from Subway: Fuck, a Jew But guess who’s Jewish and can fix him? Loveline’s Dr. Drew Princess Leia cuts the halva with Elsa from Frozen David Beckham is the king of soccer studs and also a quarter chosen Ron Jeremy is fully Jewish and so is his foot-long buddy Shia LaBeouf is half a Jew but 100 percent nutty It’s who but Santa Claus who makes Christmas so merry But we get two jolly fat guys: ice cream’s Ben & Jerry’s
Come on all to Chanukah, get up and celebrate Chanukah Don’t mess with us, oh Chanukah, let’s all get along for Chanukah So drink your Jaegerbomb-ikkah and smoke your medical-marijuan-ikkah If you really, really wanna-kah, have a happy, happy, happy, happy Chanukah
