With all the web surfing that we do to come up with a blog post every day (almost 2,200 since we started seven years ago), we rarely find time to watch TV series and so we completely missed Glee, the musical comedy-drama television series that aired on the Fox network from May 19, 2009, to March 20, 2015.
Our searching for Chanukah videos this year yielded an unexpected bonus in a version of Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah, the traditional Yiddish song that was featured in a Glee episode in 2012.
It is sung by the characters Jake and Puck. They sing the Barenaked Ladies arrangement of the song.
They arrive at Paramount Pictures Studios. Puck grabs guitars as Jake questions his actions. Once again, Puck says he's "conjuring the Network." Together they run through a cafe shop, singing, before being sent away by the shop owner. As they ride through the studio in a golf cart, they continue to reel people in with the song.
They even interrupt a film shooting to sing, with everyone joining in. They ride the cart to a large Christmas tree filled with presents, singing together. At the end of the song, Jake and Puck are seen in a tattoo shop, getting a Jewish star on their left shoulder. Puck happily yells, "Happy Hanukkah!"
