The downtown show Nov. 18 also featured David Spade, Nick Swardson and Rob Schneider.
The song, first performed in 1994 on “Saturday Night Live,” is “for all those nice little Jewish kids who don’t get to hear any Hanukkah songs” during the holiday season, Sandler has said.
The guitar-playing Sandler notes Jewish or part-Jewish Shia LaBeouf, Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Adam Levine, Scarlett Johansson, Drake, Princess Leia and animated characters from “Frozen.” And many others.
“Fans of the song may recall that the original version included the like of Bruce Springsteen, Goldie Hawn, O.J. Simpson, and Spock. An updated 1999 version included Winona Ryder and Courtney Love. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller and Natalie Portman were included in the 2002 installment,” said one report.
This year, the Jewish Festival of Lights starts at sundown Sunday, Dec. 6.
Adam Sandler released a new Chanukah song and I couldn't feel like I was in high school more. So. Much. Yes. https://t.co/dITSrRndfM
