The sister trio Haim have reworked Adam Sandler’s iconic Christmas song “The Chanukah Song” to play it more -propriately in 2021. The updated track mentions modern day Jewish celebrities, and the trio had so much fun during the performance that they even hint at a possible upcoming Haim tour.

Haim replaces Sandler’s selected famous Jewish names with those of Haim collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson’s wife Maya Rudolph, J -anese Breakfast, Dessner brothers Aaron and Bryce, Haim collaborator Ezra Koenig’s partner Rashida and her sister Kidada, Schitt’s Creek creators Eugene and Dan Levy, pop superstar Doja Cat, young film actor Timothee Chalamet. They also refer to the Omicron variant and the late Stephen Sondheim.
One-third of Haim, Alana, stars in Anderson’s newest film, Licorice Pizza, which hit theaters last month. The soundtrack is pretty radical, with greats like David Bowie, Nina Simone, Sonny & Cher, Donovan, Wings and more.
