Maccabeats Makeover Taio Cruz's 'Dynamite'

Check out this video of a capella group The Maccabeats covering Taio Cruz‘s song “Dynamite” with a Jewish spin on it!

“I flip my latkes in the air sometimes, singing ay-oh, spin the dreidel,” the group sings about Hanukkah. “Just want to celebrate for all eight nights, singing ay-oh light the candles.”

The Maccabeats, an all-male a capella group from NYC’s Yeshiva University, have already racked up more than 300,000 YouTube views for the video!

Last month, The Today Show anchors also recorded their version of “Dynamite” complete with beatboxing!

    Singing, dancing, partying? These guys look like “Hellenized Jews” to me. The Taliban-like Maccabees would not have be very happy with these guys.

    Cute video though.
