Happy Chanukah!

Chanukah starts tonight, so to honor this joyous occasion, I'm proud to present to you a cartoon version of Neil Diamond performing Adam Sandler's Chanukah song:



Yes, this really is Neil Diamond covering this classic song. Long-time readers know that I'm a Neil Diamond fan, but there are certainly parts of this version that make me cringe.

Happy Chanukah everyone!

Okay, I can understand changing it to "DON'T smoke your marijuanica", but who thought it would be a good idea to add Jesus Christ to the mix after Tom Cruise instead of "but I heard his agent is," per the original? Plus, the visual accompanying that was horrifying.

As a resident of Middle Tennesee, I like the ending, "Happy Chanukah, y'all."

Right back at you LA!

Messiah - I completely agree with you. Plus, why is Santa needed in the video to play drums. And did Rod Carey not convert?

Jeff - The Happy Chanukah, y'all line just doesn't seem right for this song or coming from Neil.

Carissa - Definitely not one of Neil's top 25 songs, but it's still nice hearing him sing.
