Adam Sandler gives his seal of approval after sisters in rock band Haim update famous Chanukah Song


As the eight days and nights of Hanukkah wind down, the pop rock band Haim are offering up an updated version of Adam Sandler’s hilarious and catchy Chanukah Song. 

The comedian famously first performed The Chanukah Song during season 20 of Saturday Night Live in 1994, and it has since gone on to become a holiday staple.

The three sister that make up the band — Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim — posted their rendition on their Instagram and Twitter pages; only there’s replaced some of the famous celebrities mentioned in the lyrics who’re celebrating the Jewish Festival Of Lights.

‘Maya Rudolph lights the menorah,’ the Haim sisters began in their version of the now classic comedy tune.

They went on to give shout outs to the indie rock band Japanese Breakfast, Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the rock band The National, actress Rashida Jones and sister Kidada Jones, and actors Eugene and Dan Levy.      

They also sang in harmony about pop star Doja Cat and actor Timothée Chalamet, who are both half-Jewish: ‘Put ’em both together, what a fine looking Jew!’ Haim sang, in a reference to one of Sandler’s most memorable lines, where he paired Paul Newman and Goldie Hawn as the ;fine looking Jew.

‘Sandler we love you,’ the ladies gushed in the cation of the post.

‘So I wrote a brand new Chanukah song for you Jewish kids to sing and I hope you like it.’   

His comedic tune would later be released as a single and go on resurface every holiday season.

Over the years, Sandler updated the song a number of times, including a second version for his album Stan And Judy’s Kid (1999), and again for the Eight Crazy Night soundtrack (2002), and a fourth take on it that was recorded in 2015.
