Thanksgivukkah, as told by a Hasidic puppet rock band

Yes, you read that correctly.

Perhaps the most bizarre production to use Thanksgivukkah as a muse is this music video, in which the band Buba Myses rocks out to a holiday-themed parody of the will.i.am/Britney Spears song “Scream and Shout.”

The one thing that separates this video from the ever-growing number of Jewish parodies on YouTube: the band members are Hasidic. They’re also puppets. The band name Buba Myses, Yiddish for “grandma tales,” is also a play on the Hebrew word buba, which means puppet.

But as much as the presentation is impressive, I’ve gotta say that the character I identify with most is the bewildered guest. If I came to a Thanksgiving dinner only to be greeted by a bunch of Orthodox puppets, I’d be pretty confused, too.
