Jewish a cappella group the Maccabeat have released a new music video for their song “Latke Recipe” ahead of Hanukkah 2015.
The video debuted on Time’s website on Monday. “Latke recipe” is a parody of rock band Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” hit from last summer. The song’s refrain goes like this:

The band has since opened for Jewish reggae star Matisyahu and performed at the White House for a reception in honor of Jewish Heritage Month.
