Drake released his newest music video this week, titled “HYFR” (Hell Yeah F***ing Right). It features a lot of swearing, dancing women in minimal clothing and fellow rapper Lil’ Wayne.

What makes this video different from all other music videos?

Well, for one thing, the entire video is set in a synagogue, where Drake gets re-bar mitzvah’d. The provocative clip opens with actual footage of young Drake (then Aubrey Graham) saying “Mazel tov” to the camera and dancing at a bar mitzvah. He is also seen reading from the Torah (and later destroying a Torah-like cake). With all the cursing and scantily clad women, this is one bar mitzvah to which you wouldn’t want to invite your grandfather.
