The Purim parody videos have arrived

Print Email

Purim begins Saturday evening, which means it’s time for the parody videos, that historic holiday tradition, to begin making their way across the Internet. This one, from A.K.A. Pella, takes a page from one of recent pop culture’s most deliriously catchy creations: Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis’ inanely entertaining What Does The Fox Say?

It’s actually a pretty concise retelling of the Purim story, which works strangely well with the song’s jaunty rhythm. It gets a little intense toward the end, though, perhaps forgetting it’s a parody and not a parsha. Still, it’ll probably get stuck in your head. Have a look:
