For the love of the chosen people, must we keep peddling parody?
The latest Rosh Hashanah YouTube video — a parody of LMFAO "Party Rock Anthem" — features black-and-white-clad yeshiva bochurim breakdancing to a shofar-laden chorus. The video was produced by Aish.com, the online division of the Jerusalem-based Jewish educational and outreach organization. Of note, the lyrics were written by the original king of Jewish parody, Lenny Solomon of Shlock Rock fame.
