Yid Vid: Birthright Enlists Israel’s Reigning YouTube Queens

Embed this video

In the past decade, Birthright Israel has established itself as the Jewish community’s unquestioned leader in providing free Israel trips to young Jews. More recently, it has also become, quite possibly, the Jewish community’s No. 1 patron of the art of YouTube video-making.

For its latest effort, Birthright enlists Israel’s leading lip-syncers, Tasha and Dishka, two young ladies from Ramle who became YouTube sensations with their lively interpretation of The Pixies’ “Hey” — which has now been viewed more than 22 million times(!).

For Birthright, the dynamic duo of viral video lip-syncs in various holy land hot spots to the song “All Eyes on Me” by Israeli power-pop band The Carsitters — all in honor of Israel’s 60th birthday.

The verdict?: It’s not bad, but it’s no “Hey.”

Hat tip: Jewlicious.
