"Maccabeats" back at it with "Purim Song"

(CBS) The all-male, Jewish a cappella group that brought you "Candlelight" (a Chanukkah-themed, YouTube song sensation) is back at it with "Purim Song."

This new music video was uploaded yesterday, but already has upwards of 100,000 hits.

Guess people were jonesing for more from Yeshiva University's "Maccabeats" - after all, "Candlelight" was one of the most viewed holiday videos last year.

Today it has over four million hits.

So, what it is about this group that keeps attracting online viewers?

My bet is on the Elvis look-a-like. (The resemblance is intentional, right?)
