Battle of the Videos

In the words of Michael Buffer

Ladies and Gentleman!!!!!!!!!!! Ding Ding Ding
LETS GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well im sure by now most of you have seen the new Maccabeats Purim Video. They make another valiant effort at trying to change the way the world will look at Jewish holidays.
Now some of you may know about my feelings towards the maccabeats, but one thing I cant argue with is the success of the first video. The video was amazing and did a great job at teaching the story of Chanukah. This next one, has the problem of trying to follow the best act on stage, not an easy thing to do. Uri you really started off on top and I truly wish you the best but trying to stay at the level of the first one will be a very tough feat.
But what you may not be aware of is that another accapella group in Israel also had the same idea. And the craziest part is, they even did it to the same song Pink - raise Your glass.
So I say, lets take it to the polls. Below are the links to the 2 videos. Watch them both if you have not yet already and respond back with opinions on which one you feel is better and in what ways.

The Fountainheads

The Maccabeats

Special shout out to Matt for actually having a talking part in this one. Congrats man, soon enough on Broadway.
(Uri you can thank me later for getting you all these extra views)

  2. its a tough call
    the purim video by the maccabeats isnt as good as the channukah one, but that might just be because it isnt a novel idea anymore. also i felt like it didnt give over the story of purim as well as they gave over the story of channukah.
    the fountainheads video, had a lot of little cool scenes, very artistic, but i felt that a lot of the dance scenes were very disjointed and that they were trying to be too artsy, but i think that they did a little better of a job explaining the holiday.
    so in conclusion i am probably going to have to watch them again before i can name a winner
