Here's one very original video invitation for a Bar Mitzvah in Reisterstown.
Reisterstown teenager Jacob Frazier said he likes to make people laugh and that's just what happened when his friends received their video invitation to his Bar Mitzvah scheduled for later this month. 

Bar Mitzvah is a Jewish coming of age ceremony, often taking place for boys when they turn 13. 

Frazier said he and his mom enlisted the help of Frazier's uncle, Rob Unger and his friend, Adam Wolff, to actually pull the original song and video together. 

"They are both really funny and I knew it would be hilarious," Frazier told Patch in an email. 

The Franklin student said the video represents his personality and the relaxed, fun party he wants his Bar Mitzvah to be. 

"I think the video is great," Frazier said. "I think it represents me and who I am and also shows we are trying to have a really fun party."

"I love making people laugh and I was really happy when people were calling saying they were cracking up watching," Frazier said. "The reason we decided to do the video is because we wanted to do an original kind of party, with an original kind of invitation."

Why thank you Buck! We had some very talented people do this for us! Susan, hmmmm.. 4000 hits on you-tube in four days. And three very positive newspaper articles looks like we don't need your recommendations. Even Heeb magazine loved it. http://heebmagazine.com/oh-god-bar-mitzvah-video/47161. I feel sorry for you that you feel the need to tell people what to do. Live and let live. Learn to have a little fun. We actually have a beautiful ceremony before the party. Not that its any of your business. I did not do this for your approval nor was I looking for anyone else s. The girls in the video are clearly not there.. put in for a laugh for people that HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR. I actually love the opening song and do not feel it was disrespectful in any way shape or form. I have had orthodox Jews tell me this had them cracking up. A bit of advice to you..people dislike others that tell them what to do. We clearly knew there would be people like you.. because you cant please everybody, but shocked that someone would number their instructions on how we should live our lives and what kind of party we should have for our son. By the way.. my son is one of the nicest kids you will ever meet. If you don't like the video. don't watch it.. really simple.

Susan, I have watched this video four times and laughed and loved it each time. How rude of you to tell this family what to do with their religion and child. Its almost astonishing that you would think that this is ok? Karen, my advice to you is to ignore the negative people. You will never please everyone. I am a very religious man who happens to think that this is an amazing video not only for your child but also for the town of Reisterstown. Susan, you really should mind your own business. Mazel Tov to the young man. He seems like he is very loved. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS BASED ON.. Love the video! CONGRATS ON ITS SUCESS.

very creative and fun video......I know nothing about the Jewish faith or this family but I am sure the family take their faith very seriously.......why not make it fun! I don't understand why people have to make rude remarks. If you don't agree,don't do it...plain and simple,but don't rain on others parade.....I wish this fine young man much success and tons of fun at his Bar-Mitzvah....I just wish I knew him so I could go!!!! LOL
