Israeli supermodel, Bar Refaeli, has proved, once again, that she is too hot for Israel. What you might find more surprising, however, is the fact that she managed to do it with a muppet.

Featuring Refaeli in a commercial as the girl in a muppet’s sexual fantasies proved to be too hot for Israeli audiences and it has been condemned to non-primetime spots. After watching the 54 second commercial, governmental council The Second Authority for Television and Radio decided that it had “too many sexual insinuations” and should not air before 10pm.

In the commercial, one Refaeli turns into two and then finally three. The three clones then do everything from playing strip-poker, to taking pictures in a photo booth, to washing a car provocatively with Red Orbach, the purple puppet.

Watch the offending commercial and you can decide if it’s really worth banning from primetime.
