Eight Days of Videos–Matisyahu’s Miracle

This entry was posted in Holidays on by .

A couple weeks ago, we noticed on Matisyahu’s website (we read ‘em all) that he was coming out with a new song for Hanukkah. We posted the song right away, even before the official music video came out.

That was a mistake.

Why was it a mistake? Because this music video is kind of the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m not even sure what it’s totally about–but I do know that it’s amazing.

The video starts with Matisyahu ice skating with some kids, when all of a sudden, he is knocked over by a guy in a Santa hat. This leads to Matisyahu getting knocked out and having a crazy psychedelic dream–where he dons a Santa suit.

When you’re done watching this video, watch this episode of FX’s Louie where Louie C.K. gets knocked out by laughing gas at the dentist (unless you’re kid. Then go watch Power Rangers). Don’t their psychedelic dreams seem crazy similar or is it just me?

    salut. j aimerai bien parler avec Matisyahu.sa voix me touche enormement et en plus d avoir une belle gueule, on dirait qu il a une belle ame mais la ou je suis je doute. c est tout a fait louable ce qu il fait pour les gosses du Darfour, RESPECT. mais en allant a israel et en pronant le retour la bas pour tous les juifs alors que jerusalem est la terre de tous les cultes, est ce qu il ne contribue pas au meurtre d un tas de gosses palestiniens et du coup est ce qu il n est pas carrement contradictoire avec ses paroles et actions pour les enfants? je veux avec la meilleure intention du monde le comprendre, et comment parler avec lui ou lui envoyer un courriel? merci
