For the second night of Hanukkah, Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin released the second in their series of covers of Jewish artists. The duo announced the 'Hanukkah Sessions' earlier this week and they kicked it off on night one with a cover of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.”

For night two, they went with Drake’s 2015 smash, “Hotline Bling.” Grohl and Kurstin noted in a statement, “You might be surprised to learn that this superstar is… Canadian. He’s never hidden the fact that he was M.O.T. … so a generation of Jewish parents could tell their kids ‘if Drake took the time to study for HIS Bar Mitzvah, you can too.’ Ladies and gentlemen…challah at your boy….DRAKE!” In the video, Grohl seems to attempt to mimic Drake’s dancing in the original video, and it turns out that he’s just as bad of a dancer.

Yes, Drake was Bar Mitzvahed and he celebrated the anniversary of that event a few years ago at his 31st birthday party. It was also the subject of his Saturday Night Monologue in 2014.
