In it’s own twisted and hilarious way, Adam Sandler’s “The Chanukah Song” has kind of developed into a Holiday classic. You know there’s something about the song’s joyous celebration of Judaism when your Catholic relatives hum along to it throughout December.
Neil Diamond? That guy is just a stone cold killer. A Cherry Cherry Christmas is the name of his new record, which contains covers of “A White Christmas”, “Winter Wonderland”, “Joy to the World”, “Jingle Bell Rock” … and, yup, you guessed it! — as if the title of the post didn’t already give it away. Anyway, he lends a certain playful gravitas to Sandler’s goofy ditty.
Diamond posted the above animated video on his website, probably to hold over his rabid, cougar-heavy fanbase until his performance during the annual Christmas in Washington celebration, airing Dec. 20 on TNT. Also? The Diamond gets his pimp on with Twitter.
