Very interesting! May as well call him Santa Claustein! It's like if the Passover version of the Easter Bunny would be the Passover Rabbit (which lays matzah instead of eggs)!

Camille is ridiculous!!!!!
It is a joke!!!!! Made by your people!!!! Yet you need to take everything too seriously and start name calling. "Something uncalled for" I'm figuring you are part of the group of people who keeps things tense, and are the reason that we will never get along. It is a silly joke, why make it more than that? By the way, I don't even know what a "goim" is but I know for an absolute fact that if me or anyone of my faith called you anything there would be riots in the streets of Borough Park. Someone made a quick short joke about the holidays, that's right, The Holidays, that is yours and mine, and you make it into an antisemitic rant. Totally ridiculous. I will be able to site this event every time someone asks me why our peoples are so separrated. LIGHTEN UP!!! After all it's the holidays!! lol

I love the way the video was shot in black-and-white silent film style with title cards. And, the one guy in the deli at the end was simply hilarious to watch! I hope he received a good chuckle when, after the taping, the premise of the video was explained to him. As Yonah said, his reaction was simply priceless!

Very cute and clever. The reactions of the people in the pizza shop were priceless!
