Finally, the rumored (though basically expected) Maccabeats Purim song/video is here:
Update: Without any overt explanation, The Maccabeats were "beaten to the punch" by a group in Israel called "The Fountainheads," who released their own video called "Raise Your Mask" (caution: Kol Isha and women dancing in pants) also based on the secular song by Pink which is called "Raise Your Glass."
This happened coincidentally last time with "Candlelight" as well. While that was seemingly mere chance, this time it would seem something else is going on. As a high school friend once told me, "Always suspect the conspiracy!" The question is, who tipped off/leaked to who? Is there a Macca-mole?
Regardless, I still think the Maccabeats version is definitely of a higher quality in music, sound and video quality, and overall cuteness. It sounds far catchier, but that might be just me. The Fountainheads have a 15,000+ hit lead over the Maccabeats (between two posted versions of their video). How long will it take for the Maccabeats to catch up and surpass them?
My guess: not long.
