Borat’s brother makes a holiday CD


Erran Baron Cohen, brother of British comedian Sascha Baron Cohen (best-known to the world as the crazy Kazakh journalist Borat), has a Chanukah album coming out: "Songs in the Key of Hanukah." There’s a whole bunch of stuff online about the record, which remixes classic holiday tunes and includes collaborations with the likes of black Jewish rapper Y-Love (who raps in Yiddish) and Israeli singer/songwriter Idan Raichel.

Here’s a quick sampling:
