  • If ‘New Girl’ was an old Jewish woman (VIDEO)

    A few weeks ago we posted the “Funny or Die” video “Jew Girl,” a Jewish parody about Fox’s hit television show “New Girl.” Well, the Jewish parodies of Zooey Deschanel just keep coming — the newest one being “Old Girl,” it’s like “New Girl,” but old! And since grumpy old people are generally funnier, this… More ▸

  • Watch Gene Simmons speaking Hebrew!

    Gene Simmons, or Chaim Weitz, went back to his roots by publishing a video with a personal message to Israeli students at the World ORT-affiliated Shifman High School in Tirat HaCarmel, near Haifa.

  • A guide to the top 5773 Rosh Hashanah YouTube videos!

    Every year our Facebook friends, Twitter followers and fellow emailers send us Rosh Hashanah videos.
    They are usually parodies of popular songs — and amateurish (or sometimes too professional). Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re endearing, but most times they kind of get old after the, umm, 100th share. So we decided to ease on the pre-holiday headache and put this year’s top Rosh Hashanah videos on one ultimate page for you to share. We just want your newsfeed to be clean and tidy — it’s a new year, you know.
    Shana Tova!
    Here they are…
    1. The “Boy Bands Are Cool Again!” video
    Aish – “What Makes Rosh Hashanah Beautiful”  (based on One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful”)  More ▸

Shanah Tovah! More ▸

  • Brett Cohen, the best fake celebrity you think you know

    His name is Brett Cohen and earlier this summer he did one of the best social experiments/pranks ever – pretended to be a celebrity with a fake entourage, paparazzi, bodyguards and fans just to see how people will respond. Cohen also did that in the best place possible – walking from NBC Studios in Rockefeller Center to… More ▸

  • Israeli backpack campaign features bomb squad pranking (VIDEO)

    This Israeli online campaign for the New York backpack brand “Yak Pak” is pretty creative yet  controversial, since it touches a raw Israeli nerve – terrorism. The video, which went viral earlier this month, features a bunch of teenagers who place cans of graffiti paint in a backpack and then leave it unattended at a bus station…. More ▸
