If Jewish Mothers Wrote "Baby, It's Cold Outside"


One of the most often played songs during the winter holiday season is Frank Loesser's classic, Baby, It's Cold Outside. The song was included in a 1949 film titled Neptune's Daughter and won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. 

The following year Loesser wrote the music and lyrics for Guys and Dolls.

Jon Wolf and Matt Campana wondered how the song would sound if the lyrics were written by a Jewish mother. So they created a parody with animation that addresses that question head-on.

We hope you'll enjoy the parody, and if you don't remember the original, we're posting a video clip of it as sung by Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme.


2014 has been a wonderful year for us at Jewish Humor Central. We hope it's been a great one for you, too. Enjoy today's video, and don't forget to dress warmly. We wish you a happy new year, and we'll see you in 2015!
