Move over Will Ferrell, There’s A Jewish Elf In Town

Ahh the Hanukkah parody. Truly the gifts that keep on giving, long after you’ve politely asked them to stop, stop, please dear god stop already

That said, there’s a right way, and a wrong way to do a Hanukkah parody. And, in the case of Screen JunkiesJewish Elf, they mostly got it right. Sure, it occasionally falls back on the same cliches everyone uses: A sprinkle of yiddish here, a dash of whiny complaining there, and voila – Hanukkah parody. Hey, it’s a busy season. I understand.

Dig a little deeper though, and there are some genuine laughs here. And, as someone who’s actually chugged a full bottle of Manischewitz (College was a strange and confusing time for me) well, my heart goes out to star and Screen Junkies host Hal Rudnick who, rather than getting drunk, is more likely to collapse in a diabetic coma.

Kids, don’t try this at home

So, what the hell. A Hanukkah Elf? Why not?

Enjoy
