Ever since Adam Sandler debuted "The Chanukah Song" on a December 1994 episode of Saturday Night Live, the comedian/actor has updated the catchy song a couple of times (1999, 2002). Earlier this month at Carnegie Hall, Sandler unveiled a fourth iteration and has now officially released a performance of it he gave this past weekend in San Diego.
This new version references Jewish celebrities like Marvel comic book icon Stan Lee, Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Daniel Radcliffe (aka Harry Potter), The Green Hornet star Seth Rogen, Carrie Fisher (aka Princess Leia), Idina Menzel (Elsa from Frozen) and Transformers star Shia LaBeouf. Even the infamous O.J. Simpson lyric has been modernized with a shout out to the disgraced former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle.
Listen to Sandler's new and improved "Chanukah Song" in the video below.
