Kick off Hanukkah 2019 with James Corden and Boyz II Menorah's "A Week and a Day"

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      December 23 marks the start of Hanukkah. The Jewish holiday doesn't have quite as impressive a catalogue of songs as Christmas does—most likely because Jewish songwriters including Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, and Johnny Marks were otherwise engaged writing some of the best-known Christmas tunes.

      And, okay, so "A Week and a Day" isn't so much a real Hanukkah song as it is an excuse for Late Late Show host James Corden to get Zach Braff, Charlie Puth, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Josh Peck together to parody '90s/2000s boy bands. It's still fun.

      For some reason, it put me in mind of the Lonely Island's classic "Dick in a Box". Maybe it's because "Dick in a Box" features actual boy-band survivor Justin Timberlake. And, uh, the lyrics do mention both Christmas and Hanukkah. And also Kwanzaa, because your dick in a box is really an appropriate gift for any occasion. I can't embed that here, but you can watch it on Vimeo.
