Honoring the absurdly random nature of viral videos, Israeli puppet band Buba Myses and Shawn Brown have released a music video rocking out to Britney Spears and will.i.am’s hit song ‘Scream and Shout’ in celebration of Thanksgivukkah.

It seems everyone is honoring this rare convergence of American Thanksgiving and Hanukkah; Mayim Bialik discussed her plans on Arsenio Hall, Conan O’Brien introduced the world to the turkey dreidel, Manischewitz released a special holiday rap, and a 9-year-old New Yorker raised $48,000 via Kickstarter to launch the Menurkey.… so why wouldn’t Buba Myses add a fun pop culture parody to the mix? This is the last time in 79,000 years that such an event will occur, after all.

Buba Myses, meaning ‘Grandma Tales’ in Yiddish, is a Hasidic Jewish puppet rock band comprised of Josh Friedman, Shimon Shar’abi, Yanky Board, and Eli Cutz, with puppet designs by Marbe Yadaim studio.

The band is currently working on putting together a world tour in honor of Hanukkah and has created this video to help people get in the spirit of Thanksgivukkah and puppet rock.
