Yid Vid: I Like Chinese Food on Christmas — the Video, Not So Much
Brandon Walker’s “Chinese Food for Christmas” is the big Christmas-season Jewish Internet video hit. It’s been viewed more than a million times on YouTube. There’s even a stripped-down, acoustic version (which has been watched more than 500,000 times!).
The question is: Why?
Personally, I prefer this one:
My favorite line: “You see all Jewish people are eating in Chinese restaurants, but you don’t see a Chinese person eat gefilte fish in a Jewish restaurant.”
Truer words have never been said. There is no reciprocity in Sino-Judaic relations. My point exactly!
P.S. I should add that despite the second video’s title, it was actually filmed in several cities at several different Chinese restaurants (lest anyone come away with the mistaken impression that a kosher Chinese restaurant was serving pork).
