WATCH: Israeli Supermarket Hi-jinx (In a Good Way)


If you have been to a supermarket in Israel this time of year, you’ll know the queues are long, as everyone seems to be doing their last-minute Passover shopping.

The following video occurred in one of these supermarkets. For the Hebrew-impaired, the woman is asking the crowd of shoppers to sing happy birthday to her daughter, since they are bored in the queues anyway.

The look on the daughter’s face is priceless.

This is peak Israel: a woman having the chutzpah to ask strangers to sing happy birthday for her daughter…and the strangers actually unanimously doing it!
