Lipa Schmeltzer's new song, "Hang Up The Phone," raises some important questions.

If an anti-technology music video goes viral, is that success? Is break-dancing permitted during the Omer? What is a Orthodox Jewish robot permitted to do on shabbat? And is Schmeltzer, a controversial Hasidic pop singer, trying to replace Matisyahu in the frum-pop niche? Otherwise, what could he possibly be thinking? (h/t Josh Nathan-Kazis)
