If you love Days of our Lives star Brandon Barash (Jake DiMera; ex-Johnny Zacchara, General Hospital), you don't have to wait until Christmas morning -- or even celebrate Christmas at all -- to get the best gift of your life. The actor just shared a video on Instagram that has made millions of swooning fans' dreams come true.
The clip features Barash performing his own acoustic version of "The Chanukah Song," a ditty that Adam Sandler made famous when he performed it on Saturday Night Live back in 1994. But it isn't just the song that has everyone squealing in delight: it's the surprise ending!
Barash first performed his own rendition of the number back in 2020, for the Stone Cold and the Jackal podcast hosted by his former GH cast mates, Steve Burton (ex-Jason Morgan) and Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli). And just like with that performance, Barash's 2021 videotaped version (below), is something that you should definitely "watch till the end."
Surprised? You're not the only one! Barash's ex-wife, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones, GH), shared that the couple's seven-year-old daughter, Harper, was also shocked to see her dad's video ending.
"I played this for Harper... She thought it was really funny until the end," Storms shares. "Then she was concerned that you didn't know you posted something on Instagram where you're in your undies. Lol"
Barash joined DAYS as Stefan DiMera in March of 2019 and immediately became a fan favorite, especially after the character was paired with Camila Banus' Gabi Hernandez. Prior to his DAYS role, Barash played General Hospital's Johnny Zacchara. His other credits include Good Trouble, Major Crimes, 24, and Gilmore Girls.
