‘Adopt a Jewish Mother’ is the Best Fake Charity Ever [VIDEO]
Comedy team asks would it kill you to hang out with someone’s neglected mom? Read More
“Every year, thousands of Jewish mothers are neglected by sons they’ve driven away with their constant, and neurotic, nagging,” begins the faux-serious infomercial beseeching young men to spend time with mothers whose own sons won’t return their calls, or emails, or letter-style text messages.
“You can give these moms hope for as little as two hours a week—plus occasional phone calls if they read an article about someone around your age who died in a freak jet-skiing accident and they need to warn you about it,” it continues.
Yes, this has happened: a comedy sketch advertising a completely made up reverse-babysitting service for Jewish moms. The video comes to us from the team at Landline TV, which includes 2010 Big Jewcy Jared Neumark. Asked back then whether he’d always been a funny person, he replied suspiciously: “Who said I am? My mom?”
There you have it.
