Israelis Heart Pancakes

Forget humus, falafel or shwarma. Apparently, Israelis really go for pancakes.

A short film about making pancakes by an Aberdeen student has become a worldwide hit after he put it on the internet.

James Provan, 23, shot the video in his flat as a tribute to his favourite snack and placed it on the YouTube website.

It has received more then 700,000 hits and been shown to about six million viewers on American television.

The short video is accompanied by a song he composed on his keyboard.

Mr Provan made the film, which shows him getting out of bed in the morning and cooking the pancakes, using a home video camera on a tripod.

He said: “I make pancakes a lot and some days I eat up to 30 of them, so I figured I would take the world into my home and show them pancakes.

“It took me a week to make, and then I put it on YouTube.

“Almost immediately I got an email from ABC’s Good Morning America asking for permission to feature it on their programme.

“My family are quite proud of me and most of my friends can’t believe it.”

As an added bonus, the song, which he also sings, is currently sitting at number three in the Israeli radio charts.

“The fact the song is in the charts is the most random thing I have ever heard.”

Crazy. What next…mobile phone ringtones?

Huh?
