Yid Vid: If Amy Winehouse Were a Yiddish-Speaking, Bearded, Orthodox Guy Who Had a Little Too Much Manischewitz…

…she still wouldn’t want to go to rehab:

There’s something quite appropriate about doing an Amy Winehouse cover while a bit shikered. Here’s Winehouse herself performing a Michael Jackson cover while in a bit of state.

Hat tip: Commentary’s John Podhoretz

UPDATE: The mysterious, bearded, Yiddish-speaking Orthodox guy has been identified! Bintel Blog reader Ralph Kostant helpfully notes in a comment that the fellow in the video “is Marvin Silbermintz of North Hollywood, California, formerly a writer for Jay Leno at the Tonight Show, and a very funny guy.” Indeed, it turns out that this isn’t Silbermintz’s first appearance on the Bintel Blog. We previously showcased his genius back in February.

The performer is Marvin Silbermintz of North Hollywood, California, formerly a writer for Jay Leno at the Tonight Show, and a very funny guy. For samples of some of his other work, Google him!

"Schleppin' mir zu Rehab"... I love it. Marvin should record it as an Amy Winehouse cover.
