Jewish a cappella group The Maccabeats have released a new music video for their song “Latke Recipe” ahead of Hanukkah 2015.

The song is a parody of rock band Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance,” a hit from last summer. The refrain for “Latke Recipe” goes like this:

“Tonight is Hanukkah

Got everything we need

Good friends and family here to try

Our latke recipe

The latke recipe”

The Maccabeats’ “breakout hit” was another Hanukkah song, “Candlelight,” released in 2010. The video for the song, a take on Taio Cruz’s then-popular club anthem “Dynamite,” has garnered 10.6 million views on YouTube.

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.

In 2012, the Maccabeats covered Psy’s massively viral Gangnam-Style, in a song titled “What’s next? Sukkos Style?
