While we eagerly await the next version of Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song,” here’s a video of the previous iteration, released around this time last year.
The last list of people is presented here in full:
- Olaf (the snowman from “Frozen”)/Josh Gad
- Punky Brewster/Soleil Moon Frye
- Scott Rudin
- Joseph Gordon Levitt
- Stan Lee
- Jake Gyllenhaal
- “The two guys who founded Google” (Larry Page & Sergey Brin)
- Adam Levine
- Seth Rogen
- Goldberg (this Goldberg)
- Scarlett Johansson
- Geddy Lee
- Jonas Salk
- Harry Potter/Daniel Radcliffe
- Jared From Subway (“goddamnit a Jew” Sandler sang)
- Dr. Drew
- Princess Leia (or should it be “Leah”)/Carrie Fisher
- Queen Elsa from “Frozen” (I guess if her snowman is Jewish…)/Idina Menzel
- David Beckham (“a quarter chosen”)
- Ron Jeremy
- Shia LaBeouf
- Ben and Jerry
Like always, Sandler’s song brought the house down (the Jared joke in particular). After his long spate of bad movies, it was great to see that Sandler’s still got it – when he wants to, at least.
Hopefully we’re in for a fifth version this year. Who do you think will be on next list?
Hanukkah is coming up, and as you’re busy debating what to spring for your sibling on Amazon, celebrities have far bigger fish to fry.
From Drake to Chelsea Handler, there have been some pretty unusual star-studded gift exchanges — ranging from incredibly expensive to downright weird.
Here are just a few of our favorites.
File this under one of the most unusual presents we’ve heard of. Scarlett Johansson gifted her then-husband, Ryan Reynolds, with her wisdom tooth, embedded in solid gold and turned into a necklace.
It pays to star in a movie with Adam Sandler. The comedian bought his “Grown Ups” co-stars Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade $250,000 Maseratis at the end of filming.
Chelsea Handler sent Miley Cyrus a potted penis plant for her 22nd birthday. Cyrus called it “possibly the best gift yet.”
GQ wanted to thank President Obama for his work in the White House by gifting him with presents from celebrities. One bought him golf clubs, one bought him a watch and Amy Schumer bought him — Magnum condoms
Drake once bought a custom stripper pole — for himself. You do you, Drizzy.
No need to adjust your screen, you’re not seeing two Adam Sandlers but the comedian with his younger doppelgänger — who just happens to have the same name as Sandler’s “Do-Over” character.
Max Kessler met Sandler on the film’s red carpet after receiving a personal invitation from the actor for the film’s premier. But you wouldn’t know it was their first time meeting by their familiar and light hearted banter.
Watch the two Sandlers meet on the red carpet:
“It’s a younger, sweeter, better version of me,” Sandler joked, putting his arm around Kessler. “He’s a good kid, he’s funny as hell and I was happy to meet him. We do everything together now,” Sandler joked. “Yeah, we’re besties,” Kessler quipped.
“He’s moving in,” Sandler retorted.
“I heard he’s good at basketball,” Kessler said. Sandler countered, “You play hoop? Let’s do it Maxie!”
Kessler couldn’t believe he shared a name with Sandler in the SNL-alum’s second feature film with Netflix. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Kessler said the first thing he did was call his mom, “and I said, ‘This is a joke, someone dubbed the script. Someone did something, there’s no way it’s my name.’ It was true, it was real.”
“So I post a picture of myself and Adam to Reddit and it took off ,” he added. “He commented on my Facebook profile picture and the Reddit, and invited me out here.”
Old pals Adam Sandler and David Spade announced plans for a nation-wide comedy tour ahead of their upcoming Netflix movie “The Do-Over.”
According to an announcement on Sandler’s Facebook page, fans of the dynamic SNL duo can catch them live with Rob Schneider, Nick Swardson and “special guests” from May 19 to May 27. The final performance is also the premier date for the second in Sandler’s four-movie Netflix collaboration, following his controversial 2015 western “The Ridiculous Six.”
In “The Do-Over” Sandler and Spade play “two down-on-their-luck guys “decide to fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they’re pretending to be are in even deeper trouble,” according to the film’s IMDB page. The film is directed by Steven Brill, who also directed Sandler’s “Mr. Deeds” and “Little Nicky.”
Netflix released a short teaser trailer for the film and it already looks super R-rated. Watch it here:
Hollywood star Adam Sandler bought a $150 “plumber’s menorah” at a Jewish-owned Manhattan hardware store.
The actor spotted the unusual Hanukkah candelabra in the window of Beacon Paint & Hardware while shooting a Noah Baumbach film,”Yen Din Ka Kissa,” on the Upper West Side and sent a staffer to buy it for him, DNAinfo reported Friday.
“I was told he saw it in our store window when he got out of his trailer, which was in front of Beacon Paint, and asked a crew member to go buy it,” store co-owner Steven Stark told DNAinfo.
Stark has been making the unusual menorahs out of of pipe fittings as a pet project for about a dozen years. They retail for $150. It is not clear why the store was displaying the creations in March, more than three months after Hanukkah.
Stark’s brother and store co-owner Bruce Stark personally thanked Sandler for the purchase when he spotted the actor leaving his makeup trailer.
“Whatever he does, he never hides the fact that he’s Jewish,” Bruce Stark said, recounting that he told Sandler he admires his “The Chanukah Song.” “He’s as proud of being Jewish as I am.”
Stark said he tried to give Sandler his money back and make the menorah a gift, but Sandler insisted he keep it.
“‘You don’t give it away to a guy who makes a lot of money, you charge him for it,’” Sandler said, according to Stark.
According to DNAinfo, the Baumbach film, parts of which are being shot this week on West 78th Street near Amsterdam Avenue, also features Jewish actors Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman, whose discovery of his Jewish family history recently made headlines.
That’s two more potential customers for the Stark brothers.
