It’s the holiday season and American late night shows are making merry. On Thursday, James Corden, host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show,” debuted a new music video poking fun at Hanukkah and boy bands.
The song “A Week and a Day,” performed by fictional band Boyz II Menorah (a play on hip-hop group Boyz II Men), includes Corden himself, Jewish actors Zach Braff, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Josh Peck, and Jewish musician Charlie Puth.
Its lyrics include “I’ve got a week and a day of love for you this Hanukkah, girl,” and “I’ve got a week and a day of presents for a girl that shines brighter than any menorah.”
Other lyrics include: “When the world gets sad our hearts will free us just like Judas Maccabeus,” “Girl you spin me like a dreidel” and “Your lovin’ is sweeter than Hanukkah gelt.”
The fictional boy band, decked out in all white, dances around a studio littered with over-sized symbols of the Jewish festival of lights and shoots sweltering looks at the camera.
“Eloheinu melech ha-oh love to be with you,” Mintz-Plasse declares. “Girl, baruch atah I don’t know how you do it,” Braff exclaims.
