The Manischewitz Thanksgivukkah Rap Battle [VIDEO]

Popular kosher food company has released a new ad that finds a dreidel and a turkey engaged in a rap battle, that is, until they realize this year is Thanksgivukkah

We recently wrote on the upcoming phenomenon where American Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same holiday-filled day, November 28th and we encourage you take advantage of it, and host a traditional Thanksgivukkah meal with your Jewish, and non-Jewish friends.

It won't happen again for another 77,000 years.

Now it seems likes everybody is getting in the Thanksgivukkah spirit.

Just the other day, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino officially declared Nov. 28th as 'Thanksgivukkah day' in the city, Stephen Colbert ridiculed it in typical Colbert fashion, and now Manischewitz, the popular, well-known kosher food, and wine, supplier, has jumped on board with an amusing new advertisement that features a dreidel and a turkey.

The two, at first, square off against one another in heated rap battle, until they discover that this year, the two can become allies, and merge their two celebrations into one.

Integration at its finest.

It kind of reminds me of a 'Flight of the Concords' sketch, but Jewish. You be the judge. Watch below:
