Oy is Yo Backwards: Happy Hanukkah!

2004_12_07chanukah.gifTOist tipster Rachel Kagan alerted us to Eric ”the suburban homeboy’ Schwartz’s Heeb Hop parodies and we laughed so hard we nearly gave our breakfast bagel back to the world. Schwartz’s Hanukkah Hey Ya is so bad it’s gone past good and back to bad again. There’s a whole history of frightening Weird Al-style Jewsic out there, and Torontoist rues the day Shlock Rock assaulted our hometown. Memories most painful. But anyone who beatboxes around ‘Manishevitz’ can’t be nearly as frightening. An early Happy Hanukkah Homeboys!
