I love seeing YouTube videos and immediately thinking, “This is a parody, right?” Even better than that is the realization that the video in fact is not a parody. It’s incredibly real.
In this case, I’m talking about the very much real Moshiach Times Band. MTB (at least that’s what I call them) is made up of four teenage boys who sing about God and Judaism. They try to come off as both hardcore rockers but also good yeshiva boys. It’s somewhat awkward. Also, they didn’t give Joe Jonas enough solos.
I really shouldn’t make fun. When I was there age, I spent all of my time watching wrestling and sorting baseball cards.
