What can you do with All Of the Lights, a pop song by Kanye West that has 96 million views on YouTube?
Well, if you're 26-year-old Rebecca Adelson, you make it into a Passover parody, of course. Rebecca heard the words as All Other Nights, as in the words from Mah Nishtanah, On all other nights, we eat etc.....
So she turned to her crew from the hip hop sketch comedy show The People of Channel 38 and, along with her brother Matt, turned the flashy, and in our opinion tasteless song into a meaningful review of what happens on the seder night.
The music video was shot on location at two venerable Washington, DC synagogues, Adas Israel and the Historic Sixth and I.
