The Ginger Ninja just sent me a link to this article about Jewno, which parodies Juno by filtering it through a Jewish lens with high-larious results. The video gets bonus points for getting J.K. Simmons, who played Juno’s dad in the real movie, to reprise his role, but this time with a Crown Heights accent. The video also scores bonus points for having an accordion in it:
Keep an ear open for the musical parodies — in the video, they make fun on the Moldy Peaches’ homely alt-folk songs (which were featured in Juno) as well as Mott the Hoople’s All the Young Dudes: “All the young Jews…awkwardly schmooze…”.
The video was written by Daily Show writer Rob Kutner and created for the 92nd Street Y’s upcoming Purim Party.
(What’s Purim, you ask? It’s part Hallowe’en, part Frosh Week and part Asian guy meets cute Jewish girl.)
