Hasidic Jews Sing Village People's YMCA For HDTV Service


Here's something you don't see everyday. To support the launch of its new HDTV service, Israel's YES TV network with help from McCann Digital gathered together an army of Hasidic Jews to perfom the Village People's YMCA in the street. Perhaps it's just it's weirdness but we like it a lot.

They didn't gather an army of Hasidim. They gathered an army of actors who portray Hasidim. Iff one looks closely, you can see that they are not the real deal.

Hassidic Jews don't have TV at all...the content shown on it are not always 'kosher'... If you listen closely to the lyrics, you will notice that they are complaining about it...about it's quality, it's use etc... ("hdtv it's forbidden by the torah! " one says)
This makes the ad even more funny, but what's more, perfectly right on the product... Of course now they're complaing, this TV is great !

This is almost as hilarious as the Chanukah Ham story that I saw on Seth's Blog yesterday.
