You know something has jumped the shark when the Jews start doing it

by Sarah Breger

So now Jews have jumped on the “dancing down the aisle” meme. In an homage to the overplayed, yet undeniably adorable, Chris Brown “Forever” wedding dance intro, some Orthodox Jews have jumped on the bandwagon and created a dance sequence of their own.

Set to the Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling,” (listen closely and you’ll hear the Peas say “mazel tov” and “l’chayim“) the dance to the chuppah has the groomsmen getting down with moves similar to the ones from the original video.

Unfortunately we Jews are not known for our hip-hop skills, and the white blazers are less Kanye and more Canasta.

The saving graces of the dance are the confused looks of the grandparents (I survived the Holocaust for this?) and the little kid with the Jew Fro. He saves the whole thing. I see a bright future for this one. L’chayim!

  1. I enjoy Canasta. I find the remark about the white blazers off color.
