The music video for “Despacito” recently became the most watched video in YouTube’s history, with 3.3 billion views and, as someone who listens to that song seven times in a row twice a day, I can definitively say it deserves the accolade.
But I can also definitively say that the video below, of Hasidic performers Levy Falkowitz and Yossi Shtendig rocking out to a Hebrew rendition of the beloved pop hit, deserves to be witnessed 3.4 billion times.
