Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones Sing About Spinning Dreidels (For About 25 Seconds)

Any reasonable person knows that when someone says “the holiday season” they mean “Christmas”. So, when Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones made this seasonal song parody for Jimmy’s late-night talk show, I appreciated that they at least mentioned Hanukkah, if for no other reason than to pay lip service to their Jewish viewers and network heads. But – And I’m looking this gift horse squarely in the mouth here – twenty five (not particularly funny) seconds out of a four minute (not particularly funny) medley?

Next time, just send a card.

(The dreidel spinning starts at the 1:44 mark.)

[Editors note: Yes, I know Rashida Jones is Jewish. Her being Jewish doesn’t change the fact that this was 25 seconds of lame bookended by 4 minutes of also-lame]

What do you think?

    I think that Rashida Jones was doing it because she IS Jewish and celebrates Chanukah.

    “Not particularly funny” is being kind. Not particularly clever, either.

    also, what about Bette Midler at Rockefeller’s Xmas tree lighting?
    she shoulda topped that tree with a Star-o-David.
