In what could be the most random news of the month so far, legendary comedic actor, Jerry Lewis, found himself in a rap battle last week with ‘America’s Got Talent’ star, Chris La Vrar.

In between shooting scenes for his latest flick ‘Max Rose’, Lewis spent time with La Vrar, who showed off his freestyle rap skills. Although we aren’t sure why La Vrar was on the film set, Lewis was impressed with the young man’s abilities, saying “Very good. Very, very good.”

What followed was the shocker. Lewis turned to La Vrar and exclaimed, “I want to do one now in Jewish.” The crowd surrounding him laughed, but Lewis was serious. He broke into a freestyle Yiddish rap that we only wish we could understand.

Thankfully, the impromptu rap was caught on a cell phone camera for all to view and hopefully interpret.

Here’s the footage, courtesy of TMZ. If you know what Lewis is saying (assuming it’s not all gibberish), please share below.
