Video: Can Rebbes be Rockstars? (a la Nickelback)

This Yiddish music video -- Ich vil zain a Rebbe -- is not an entertainment music video. The artists who made this video spent a great deal of effort to convey a satirical message.

Yet this application of satire and music to rebbeim with nuance and detail is at once masterful and unnerving.
