Eagerly Awaiting Adam Sandler’s Next Version of “The Chanukah Song”

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:

  1. Jesus
  2. Olaf (the snowman from “Frozen”)/Josh Gad
  3. Punky Brewster/Soleil Moon Frye
  4. Scott Rudin
  5. Joseph Gordon Levitt 
  6. Stan Lee
  7. Jake Gyllenhaal
  8. “The two guys who founded Google” (Larry Page & Sergey Brin)
  9. Adam Levine
  10. Drake
  11. Seth Rogen
  12. Goldberg (this Goldberg)
  13. Scarlett Johansson
  14. Geddy Lee
  15. Jonas Salk
  16. Harry Potter/Daniel Radcliffe
  17. Jared From Subway (“goddamnit a Jew” Sandler sang)
  18. Dr. Drew
  19. Princess Leia (or should it be “Leah”)/Carrie Fisher
  20. Queen Elsa from “Frozen” (I guess if her snowman is Jewish…)/Idina Menzel
  21. David Beckham (“a quarter chosen”)
  22. Ron Jeremy
  23. Shia LaBeouf
  24. 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?
