Your favorite Jewish a cappella boys are back — and they’ve brought a frying pan.

The former Yeshiva University students that brought you such hits as and “Cups (D’ror Yikra)” have released a new hit, just in time for Hanukkah. “Latke Recipe,” which premiered on on Monday, is a parody of Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance With Me” a.k.a. that song you heard at every wedding/party/restaurant/bar/nail salon you went to this summer.

Oil + flour + applesauce + earworm pop song = Viral holiday tune.

Bonus: the song actually provides some helpful cooking tips for the ultimate crispy latke. Enjoy.
