Video: The Rosh Hashanah Rock Anthem

Remember that peculiar Kia commercial with hamsters dancing to LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem”?

Not exactly an instant classic — but the Shmooze does appreciate Aish.com’s new Rosh Hashanah-themed remake of that song. With lines like “Three times a day I’m shucklin’ shucklin’, shucklin,” and “Stand up, sit down, pass the prayer books around,” the tongue-in-cheek music video serves as lighthearted primer on the Jewish New Year. Sure, the music’s a bit insipid, but the dancing — increasingly elaborate hip-hop moves performed by a group of yarmulke-clad young men — just about makes up for it.
