BAL HARBOUR, Fla., March 17 (UPI) -- A Florida plastic surgeon could be in trouble over a satirical music video featuring a song called "Jewcan Sam."
Dr. Michael Salzhauer, who practices in Bal Harbour, just up the beach from Miami Beach, is being criticized by the Anti-Defamation League while the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is trying to determine if the video violates ethics rules, The Miami Herald reported.
Salzhauer says the video about a young Jewish man who gets a nose job after a gentile woman rejects him -- only to have her reject him once more -- is intended to be funny. But he says it also makes a serious point that plastic surgery should not be done for others.
"I want her, but she don't want what I am. She says you got a beak like Jewcan Sam,'' the song says in a takeoff on Froot Loops' Toucan Sam.
The video came to life after a Jewish band, The Groggers, asked if it could get a group rate on rhinoplasty, Salzhauer said. The group's singer, L.E. Staiman, grew up in the Miami area.
Everyone involved in the production is Jewish, including Farrell Goldsmith, a filmmaker who first introduced Salzhauer and the Groggers and produced the video.
