The Maccabeats – Pan Fry (Bad Guy and Old Town Road parody) – Hanukkah 2019

The Maccabeats – Pan Fry (Bad Guy and Old Town Road parody) – Hanukkah 2019

For our tenth (!) Hanukkah video, we return to our roots. Parodying two of the most critically and commercially successful songs of 2019, we sing about the holiday’s rituals, traditions and ideas in colored boxes.

But there’s more. Though 2019 is still one of the best times in history to be Jewish, we’re beginning to feel tremors of uncertainty. Pittsburgh, Poway, and now Jersey City all remind us that there are forces of hate who would prefer a world without us. And to them we say: “we’re not going anywhere.”

This year’s lyrics focus on Hanukkah’s unambiguously public celebration of our faith and tradition. From the menorahs in the windows of private homes, to the menorah lightings in public squares, we “light our flames for all to see.”

Happy Hanukkah!

P.S. Make sure to stick around after the main song for some “outtakes” ;)

Lyrics

Foods that we cook are practical
Symbols of different miracles
Each one is irreplaceable
And so delectable

This time of year we’ve sung about about
Dishes we’d never go without
Simple to make without a doubt
And so traditional

The Greeks were tough guys
Made our life so rough, guys
Judah said “Enough, guys,
Let’s go get the bad guys,”
Had a big fight
Temple turned out alright
Oil burned for eight nights
Festival of bright lights
Time to pan fry
(yum!)

Yeah, we’re gonna light our flames for all to see
Retell the story of the Maccabees
We’re gonna light our flames for all to see
Retell the story of the Maccabees

We wear it on our sleeve
Eight times on winter’s eve
We show that we believe
And how we can achieve
Riding on the shoulders
Of generations older
Our resolve gets stronger
As these nights get longer

We ain’t gonna stop for nothin’
Won’t stop for nothin’
We ain’t gonna stop for nothin’
Won’t stop for nothin’

Yeah, we’re gonna light our flames for all to see
Retell the story of the Maccabees
We’re gonna light our flames for all to see
Retell the story of the Maccabees
