WATCH: All Of Hollywood’s Most Classic Moments — In Yiddish

Who knew Robert De Niro speaking in Yiddish could be so satisfying?

Big shout-out to the comedy series YidLife Crisis for dubbing over some of the most classic film scenes into Yiddish. If you want to see everyone from Judy Garland to Al Pacino say some of their most famous lines with a Jewish twist, watch on. Especially worth it for the translations of the whole When Harry Met Sally “I’ll have what she’s having” scene.
