You know Marc Shaiman, yes? The genius score writer for Hairspray, SMASH, who brought us the music of South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut among other genius pop culture moments at the Tony’s and The Oscars (nominated for 5 himself) and on and on. He’s an old friend and he just posted this on Facebook;
“Oh my, what the internet can bring. I went looking for the version of The Dreidel Song that I did with the original HAIRSPRAY cast (which I had originally done with Matt & Trey for the – kind of fell in the cracks but awfully awesome – South Park Xmas CD). And this is what came up first on Google. Whoever cut together this video must be commended (and then promptly committed.) HAPPY HANUKKAH!”
Yes, please don’t get offended – or you know what? DO, if you are intent on being offended, go right ahead but it’s not the intent of Marc or myself. Watch it before Disney catches on… Happy Holidays!
