Adam Sandler Debuts New ‘Chanukah Song’ At New York Comedy Festival (VIDEO)
Adam Sandler debuted a brand new version of “The Chanukah Song” during a performance at the New York Comedy Festival. The updated lyrics include references to Adam Levine, Seth Rogen, Drake and many more Jewish celebrities. Watch the funny video below!
Sandler premiered the original “Chanukah Song” on “Saturday Night Live” back in 1994. He released an updated edition in 1999, and a third version in 2002. On Saturday night, during a surprise appearance at Carnegie Hall for the “Judd Apatow and Friends” stand-up show, the comedian treated the audience to “Part 4.”
The funny tune lists a rundown of famous people who fans may or may not have realized were Jewish. In addition to the aforementioned stars, new additions to the lineup included Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jake Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Radcliffe, and the founders of Google. Additionally, it turns out David Beckham is one-quarter Jewish.
There were many funny new lyrics, one of which went, “We may not have a cartoon with a reindeer that can talk, but we also don’t have polio thanks to Dr. Jonas Salk.” Sandler also pointed out, “Shia LaBeouf is half a Jew, but 100 percent nutty.”
The crowd erupted into equal amounts of laughter and gasps when Sandler mentioned “Jared from Subway.” The comic then sang, “But guess who’s Jewish and can fix him? ‘Loveline’s’ Dr. Drew.”
