Today is Purim, and we're sharing our last Purim music video of the season. We're taking a bold step by not first asking for a vote. We're declaring today's video the best Purim video of 2014. We hope you'll agree.
It's Shake Your Grogger, a mix of live action and animation by Michelle Citrin and a cast of dancers and musicians. The song is a parody of the 1960's calypso hit Jump in the Line (Shake Senora).
Michelle is best known as the creator and star of viral video hits including “20 Things to do with Matzah,” “Call Your Zeyde”, “Rosh Hashanah Girl” and “Hanukah Lovin.” In total, these videos have received millions of hits from around the world and has led to the press referring to Michelle as“A YouTube Sensation.”
Michelle’s viral video successes have lead to media coverage ranging from the New York Times to the Huffington Post as well as Good Morning America, CNN, CBS and even being featured on Yahoo.com’s homepage. This year, Michelle had the great honor of performing The National Anthem and her original soulful pop-folk in front of a crowd of 13,000 people including members of Congress.
Enjoy, share with your friends, and play it at your Purim seudah.
