You had too much fun making this!!

I can't even imagine the laughs as you came up with all the lines for these sites! Weren't you supposed to be cleaning for Pesach?

(42) Barry, March 18, 2014 9:49 PM

Oy!

If it didn't have such a ring of truth to it ... sad ... but funny!

(41) Vera Lucia de Oliveira Bastos, March 31, 2013 12:30 PM

It is fantastic! Hag Sameach for all you!

Kol Ha Kavod L'Aish!

I agree with most of the positive comments. As far as the speed, that's really now problem...if you see it once fast and then watch it again stopping to read the great comments on the pages of the magazines, it's even funnier! Excellint job, and the music is slso a nice touch! Chag Pesach sameach to all!

(35) Ben, March 22, 2013 4:25 AM

Needs also a slower version

Great but let's have 2 versions. 1 for the hyperactive reader and one who wants to enjoy all of the great copy!

hilary, March 25, 2013 5:15 PM

i agree,

fabulous, too fast and i can't get the music to stop!

(34) Anonymous, March 21, 2013 3:54 PM

Outstanding!

Is there any "new media" outlet that wasn't included? Outstanding work!

(33) Peculair Treasure, March 21, 2013 1:30 AM

Brilliant.

(29) Stuart Taylor, March 18, 2013 2:58 PM

Clever composition.

Enjoyed the spin on modern day processes.As usual they will always blame the Jews for anything that goes wrong in their lives. I believe that the events leading to the passover and the crossing of the Red Sea are types and shadows of things to come in the future. God will save Israel with a mighty hand from her oppressors and enemies, and her enemies will not take cognacence of the many warning plagues, prior to their destruction. Time will tell.

Too true, too true but

I really wish all the news pages weren't constantly moving--they went too fast for me to read each headline, never mind some of the articles. I guess to really get the full story I'll have to click the stop button every few frames.

(27) Anita, March 18, 2013 12:17 PM

Lol..! Very imaginative, but it's true.. ;)

(26) Frank Selch, March 18, 2013 12:08 PM

More than a reality show!

thanks for a good laugh!

(25) Shoshana, March 18, 2013 9:42 AM

AWESOME!

(24) Chaya, March 18, 2013 9:21 AM

The Best Video to Date!

Wonderfully done!

(23) jeff, March 18, 2013 3:45 AM

funny!

Very entertaining! A "Purim spiel" for Pesach! Thanks.

(22) john michael, March 18, 2013 2:40 AM

I loved it and it came at just the right time thanks

(21) Ephraim M. London, March 17, 2013 11:44 PM

Racist Media

It is so true! And. S Levy: AWESOME!

(20) ivette zamir, March 17, 2013 11:35 PM

BRILLIANT

Simply brilliant! Genius! To the makers of this video thumbs up! We want more! Thank you!

(19) Pam Franks, March 17, 2013 10:10 PM

that is really funny!

(18) Jimmy 1942, March 17, 2013 10:09 PM

Thanks for a big laugh because the American media can't

I needed a good laugh today because I not feeling very well and this did it. Thank you very much for it

(17) Barbara E Bj, March 17, 2013 8:48 PM

Good One!

Very funny! Perfect!

(16) Shabse, March 17, 2013 8:41 PM

great way to take a break

In the midst of cleaning, cooking, and otherwise getting ready for the holiday, this was a great way to take a break. It does help to hit the pause button and take in the "sidebars.!"

Also raises the question: Did our ancestors - and particularly Moses - have a sense of humor, too?

Chag Sameach!

(15) Yaacov, March 17, 2013 7:39 PM

I agree... slow down... but missing condemnation and resolutions.

Very cute... But please slow it down. And to be truly accurate, it would have to include much more blame, condemnation and resolutions agains the Jews.

(14) Sam Kustanovitch, March 17, 2013 6:38 PM

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed it! Thanks

(13) Tim Upham, March 17, 2013 6:12 PM

Just Go By What It Means

Haggaddah in Hebrew means "telling." It is simply just telling the story of Pesach.

(12) Shlomo, March 17, 2013 5:23 PM

"Slaves"?

I don't think the UN would refer to us as "slaves."
It would probably be simply "Jewish workers launch terrorist attack."
Oh, never mind...that could be confused with real UN statements.

Anonymous, March 18, 2013 12:03 AM

unfortunately, that is all too true.

Annie, March 18, 2013 3:25 AM

Good one!

That made me laugh so hard I nearly fell off my chair... :-)

Margarita, March 18, 2013 6:56 AM

Well said

my thoughts exactly - i thought it would be Jewish oppressors who stolen Egyptian land....

(11) Lize, March 17, 2013 5:22 PM

brilliant

This video is brilliant and exciting to watch - would love to watch and read all that is in the article. Who ever made this - please do it again!!

(10) S.Levy, March 17, 2013 4:50 PM

Racist Media

At the zoo, a little girl runs up and down and suddenly she approaches the lion's cage. The lion manages to catch her through the bars. Everybody starts yelling, shouting, having hysterics; among all this confusion a young man jumps forward, gives a huge punch in the lion's nose and grabs back the girl, saving her. Everyone praises, kisses, hugs, lifts him up. Suddenly a woman approches him and askes "I'm a reporter and would like to tell your story. Who are you such a hero?" He replies, "Oh I'm just a simple Israeli soldier in the Tzahal, the Israel army; this is nothing, we're used to helping and saving people"..... Next day, the headlines: "A cowardly Israeli soldier attacks an African Immigrant and steals his meal"... NO FURTHER COMMENTS NEEDED!!!!!!!

Annie, March 18, 2013 3:30 AM

media bias

Another good one!

(9) Allen, March 17, 2013 4:36 PM

GO WITH THE FLO

JUST STOP AND GO WITH THE FLOW

(8) Abbie Adler Goldhar, March 17, 2013 4:34 PM

Brilliant

AISH DID IT AGAIN! All your videos are worthy of watching and passing on to my list. I always learn something, especially from the exceptional "Crash Course videos on all the Jewish Holidays" written and produced by Avraham Goldhar. His teaching is so clear and at the same time enjoyable.

(7) Carlos, March 17, 2013 4:33 PM

Passover News Video

Well done.

(6) REVSEVTWO, March 17, 2013 4:25 PM

REALLY FUN, THANKS.

(5) Gloria, March 17, 2013 4:19 PM

Fantastic

This video was a wonderful Sunday morning treat. I would have liked more time on each item in order to savour it more fully. After all, we need TIME to laugh.

(4) Anonymous, March 15, 2013 7:26 PM

so clever

This was so excellently done. I agree w the comment that it would be even more fun to watch if there were time to read and take in all the visuals bf moving the next. Really terrific though.

Anonymous, March 17, 2013 5:09 PM

Text readable version

I agree, this is such a great and well done video. Very insightful as well as funny. Since the hard work was already done on the the pages for each screen shot, would it be possible to have a printable version of them and have them to read, especially as a "kosher for Yom tov" version, aka without computer use.

(3) Flo, March 15, 2013 2:14 AM

Please s-l-o-o-o-o-w-w down

Whoever made this video must be very young. It moves so fast there is no time to take in the visuals AND read at the same time, especially at my age. LOL I have noticed this with a few of the videos and I hope, in the future, you will slow down so that all of your hard work can be full enjoyed. I watched a second time,and ued the pause button frequently.

Michael, March 17, 2013 6:16 PM

How 2 View this Fast Video

I figured it out. Hit the pause button and svor the detail.

drbill, March 17, 2013 7:11 PM

Flo is so on the mark. This wonderful video could have been so much more powerful if it took another 30 seconds.

(2) Antonio Perez, March 14, 2013 4:43 PM

Passover: In the News

Great video, gets the story accross. Also makes you think about today's world and it's penchant to spin. No pun intended.

(1) Lisa, March 14, 2013 3:01 PM
