Neil Diamond Wishes You A Happy Hanukkah

At first, I wasn’t sure this was real. It was so insane to me that Neil Diamond would make this video that I just assumed that it had to be a spoof. But no. I was wrong. It’s on Diamond’s official YouTube account. It’s real and it’s amazing.

Everyone talks about Orrin Hatch having the best Hanukkah YouTube video of the year. But, and in no disrespect to the Senator, I gotta cast my vote to the great Neil Diamond. I don’t care if he is covering Adam Sandler’s “Hanukkah Song.” This video is just awesome.

He also changed up the lyrics a bit, including putting Jesus on the list, and he seems genuinely excited that O.J. Simpson is not Jewish. You gotta check it out.
