This week is Thanksgiving, pushing us full force into the holiday season. And to celebrate, Adam Sadler is bringing an early present for everyone! No matter what your religion is, you've probably enjoyed listening to his iconic Chanukah Song. Now, he's updated it. And there are some surprising and hilarious new inclusions.
As the title might suggest, this reworked Chanukah Song is the fourth version that Adam Sadler has released over the past 21 years. And as you can see, he's not really into celebrating the catchy holiday theme on its anniversary, instead surprising fans unexpectedly with his revised take on the classic. He opens the new video by gleefully telling those in the audience that he is about to introduce a fourth list of Jewish individuals. Not all of them, whom, mind you, should be celebrated.
Probably the biggest laugh in this new version of the Chanukah Song comes when he mentions Jared from Subway, along with a stinging explicative. Other notable new inclusions in the song include Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who, ironically enough, are starring in a Christmas movie this Thanksgiving weekend titled The Night Before. Shia LaBeouf gets a nod for being a really 'weird ass' Jew. And Adam Levine's mention seems to mark the highlight of his career.
Of course, real life celebrities aren't the only ones who get a shout out this time around. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens fever at an all time high, Princess Leia gets name checked, as do the characters from Frozen. Scarlett Johansson and Drake are also among those to be honored and immortalized by this cherished comedy song.
The video for Chanukah Song Part 4 was recorded last week during a live show in San Diego, and it was released on the official Happy Madison Youtube page. The song original made its debut at Judd Apatow's standup special at New York City's Carnegie Hall last week. Adam Sadler left this short, but sweet, message for his fans.
"I did a show with some friends in San Diego last week and recorded a new one for you. Have a great holiday season."
The very first version of the Chanukah Song debuted on Saturday Night Live in 1994. The original included shout outs to Goldie Hawn, O.J. Simpson and Spock. In 1999, the song got its first makeover, with Winona Ryder, Courtney Love and Mike D of the Beastie Boys getting thrown in the mix. The third time the song saw a redo was in 2002, with Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller and Natalie Portman all becoming a part of the legacy. You can check out the latest new and improved version here.
