What songs should be on the "Greatest Hits of Chanukah" album?

This video encourages the discussion of Jewish values as they relate to contemporary culture. Jewlarious does not endorse any particular film.

Not funny...but probably our fault

There are definitely those that will tell me I have no sense of humor and I need to lighten up (no pun intended), BUT any Jew with a sense of self-worth and dignity would easily recognize that this is a complete mockery of Chanuka and subtly (?) anti-Semitic to boot. It's baffling that the media really believes a holiday centered around a creepy,old, red-hatted candy man to be superior to Chanuka-- a holiday that holds meaning for all ages throughout history. Perhaps more baffling, though, is that this clip, like so many other similar videos and comics, has been circulated and posted (and created?) by Jews.
I guess we can only expect the world out there to appreciate us for who we are when WE can do the same.

The funniest think was the opening line where Jake Owen says "you can call me Jay Cohen". it was downhill after that.

Is it me or do the 'Jewish' characters in this video have prosthetically lengthened noses?
