With the holidays right around the corner, Adam Sandler decided to reprise his famous comedy anthem "The Chanukah Song" at the Judd Apatow & Friends event at New York City's Carnegie Hall. With an updated part four, the SNL alumnus offered up all new jokes about the Festival of Lights and nods at Jewish celebrities, giving the decades-old song a fresh coat of paint.
The Sunday night (Nov. 15) performance has been taken down from all websites by Warner Music Group but the lyrics have circulated around the Internet. New name-checked celebrities include soccer star David Beckham, comic book creator Stan Lee and Star Wars' own Princess Leia. Sandler stormed Carnegie Hall to show support for friend and Trainwreck director Judd Apatow's stand-up routine, using the opportunity to unveil his latest "Chanukah Song" update, reports Vulture.
"Princess Leia cuts the halva with Elsa from Frozen," while "David Beckham is the king of soccer studs and also a quarter chosen," Sandler sang according to The Daily Mail.
Jewish celebrities such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Adam Levine, the characters from Disney's Frozen, Hulk Hogan and Seth Rogen also received honorable mentions throughout the song that pokes fun at being Jewish around Christmas time.
"Harry Potter and his magic wandi-kah, celebrate Chanukah," Sandler continued. "Shia LaBeouf is half a Jew but 100 percent nutty." While those who celebrate Christmas look to Santa Claus for holiday cheer, the Waterboy star sang that the Jews have their own chubby, jolly holiday stars: "ice cream's Ben & Jerry."
"The Chanukah Song" originally came out on Dec. 3, 1994, when Sandler penned and performed the song on Saturday Night Live. Making an explosive impact, the song has since been incorporated into his stand-up comedy routines and records, later reworking the lyrics in 1999 and 2002.
