Jimmy Kimmel Challenges Audience With ‘Hipster or Hasidic’ Beard Game (VIDEO).

Public Enemy performed a medley of tracks on American TV show ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night (October 23), during a segment poking fun at the gentrification of Brooklyn.

Wrapping up his “Back to Brooklyn week,” Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday tested the audience of his late-night talk show by having them distinguish between different bearded men. The one-off segment of the show is called ‘Do the Right Thing 2: Do the White Thing’, and is a parody update Spike Lee’s 1989 movie ‘Do The Right Thing’, which examined racial tension and culture in Brooklyn. After describing Brooklyn as “by far the most bearded spot in New York,” the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host introduced a segment called: “Hipster or Hasidic?” This involved Kimmel showing a close-up photo of the bottom part of a man’s face, and the audience had to guess if it belonged to a hipster or a Hasidic Jew.

It’s taken from Public Enemy’s 1990 album ‘Fear Of A Black Planet’. “The title track, with its pummeling breakbeats and guitar samples, recalls the blistering funk of the group’s ’80s heyday. Kimmel joked about the latter, “He smokes salmon and cigarettes.” After one man identified himself as “kind of both,” Kimmel dubbed him “Hipsidic.” And Chuck D still raps like a man doing knuckle push-ups, organising against white supremacy on ‘No Sympathy From The Devil’, picking over the history of African colonialism on ‘Mine Again’, and punning hard on ‘Earthizen’: “The earth without art is just ‘eh’.”
