Sometimes, the best concepts are the ones with no complex reasoning behind them. Like the Dr. Dreidel. Created for its sheer hilarity and the love of puns, this laser-etched, wooden dreidel brings together two unlikely cohorts: the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah and rap music.
Each Dr. Dre face has been carefully chosen to correlate with the 'aftermath' of the dreidel's spin.
ג Gimmel, 'take all,' is a dreidel player's dream. It gets a thumbs up from a happy Dr. Dre.
- ה Hay, 'take half,' is no reason to party, but isn't too shabby, hence the mildly smug portrait or Dr. Dre.
- נ Nun, 'nothing happens,' is a boring outcome. A dead-pan Dr. Dre affirms this.
ש Shin, 'put one in,' is pretty depressing; the dreidel player loses an M & M or other such playing piece. But shins are seldom a chronic problem in dreidel. Dr. Dre's definitely overreacting.
