If you saw this weekend's SNL, you would have seen Vanessa Bayer (C'04, Bloomers) playing a very convincing Bar Mitzvah boy whose Hollywood music exec "big shot" uncle brings in performances by Taylor Swift (played by Gwyneth Paltrow), Jay-Z (Jay Pharoah), Alicia Keys (Nasim Pedrad), Katy Perry (Abby Elliott), and Cee Lo Green (himself).
After the jump, watch SNL jew-ify popular songs and check out some of my favorite lines!
Some great lines:
- Vanessa: "I just wanted a modest luncheon"
- Parodying Taylor Swift's song "You Belong With Me," Paltrow sang:
"She's in synagogue with her new clear braces on / I'm sittin' shiva with no mirrors to put makeup on / She doesn't get your Mel Brooks humor like I do / She wears Macy's, I wear Loehmann's. She wears Filene's and I wear Filene's Basement / Can't you see? She's just a JAP. Not like Japanese."
- Katy Perry "Hi everybody, Happy Jewish"
- Cee Lo Green: "That's straight up meshuganeh"
Speaking of Katy Perry, remember THIS Penn alum itunes chart-topping cover?
