If you’re hoping the Canadian crew behind Epic Meal Time prepared some gastric monstrosity equally nauseating and delicious for you to recreate at your Passover Seder, you’ll be quick to remember how much bacon Harley Morenstein, Alex Perrault, and Sterling Toth use in their culinary creations and realize these dudes definitely aren’t kosher and most probably aren’t MOT.
After you’ve indulged your disappointment with a viewing of Turbacon you’ll scour the web for an hour or two to come to realization that entertaining Passover videos, be them about recipes or other aspects of the Jewish holiday, aren’t the internet’s forte. Some of the best filmmakers and comedians in the world have had a Bar/Bat Mitvah, but for better or worse none of those best filmmakers or comedians choose to make videos on or about Passover.
What we’re left watching are embarrassing covers of pop songs your mother forwarded you via e-mail, reruns of Feed Me Bubbe, animated biblical stories made into edutatinment, and instructional videos that look more like infomercials. And this:
Aish.com, the self-proclaimed “world’s largest Jewish content website” produced Google Exodus, a screencast version of how the story of Passover would’ve went down if Moses and Ramses II had those new superfast Comcast internet connections.
It’s okay! Nothing to kvell over, but the best I’ve found. If you’ve watched something better, let me know in the comments. I could use some online entertainment tonight after I knock back a few drinks.
