New Hanukkah Song Sweeps the Nation

"Latkelicious," Parody of "Fergalicious," Is Released

BOSTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 6, 2006 -- Jon Fursh, a New York native and current resident of Boston, has produced a Hanukkah song as a testament of his love for the latke. A latke is a potato pancake, traditionally known as a Jewish cuisine that is prepared for Hanukkah.

Hanukkah songs, especially parodies, have always been popular with the American public. Jon attempts to recreate that feeling with "Latkelicious," as both a tribute to the Jewish faith and to Fergie's music.

"Latkelicious" is a parody of "Fergalicious" by Fergie and featuring "Fergalicious" is the second single off Fergie's hit album "The Dutchess." The album was produced by the Music Group and distributed by Interscope Records and A&M Records.

The lyrics of "Latkelicious" describe the latke as "so delicious," just as Fergie describes herself in "Fergalicious." Much of the lyrics were based of the syllabic sentence structures found in the original song, in an effort to create a powerful parody.
