The acapella group Kippalive on Monday released an inventive new take on the classic Purim hits, in its song "Mission Purimpossible."

The song, which comes ahead of the holiday on Thursday, or Friday for those celebrating Shushan Purim such as residents of Jerusalem, mixes the lyrics praising the salvation of Purim together with the catchy tune of the famous spy movies.

"The rose of Ya'akov thrilled with joy and exulted when they beheld Mordechai garbed in royal blue," sing Kippalive using the words sung at the end of the reading of Megillat Esther which retells the Purim story, together with "for the Jews, there was light, happiness, joy and glory" (Megillat Esther 8:16).
