Holiday rap videos take on Hanukkah, airport security

Who doesn’t love a nice new holiday rap video to break up the final gray workdays of the year? And today we have two, to both inform and inflame you.

The first is from Fairfax Station, by those notorious gangstas the B-Boyz — brothers Max (8), Jake(11) and Ben (13) Borenstein, who have crafted “Menorah Hearts” to the tune of “Stereo Hearts” by Adam Levine and Gym Class Heroes. They told Rachel Hatzipanagos of the Fairfax Station Patch that it’s their fourth year of producing a Hannukah video, and their video last year “Dynamite Hanukkah” also proclaims the joy of the Jewish Festival of Lights, which begins today.

And now here’s the State of NoVa’s favorite libertarian rap comic, Arlington’s Remy Munasifi, with “Grandma Got Indefinitely Detained (Now),” to the tune of “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” Remy’s, for once, is the less dark of the two.
