Israeli MK Boaz Toporovsky, Sexy And He Knows It

The Original – Boaz Toporovksy’s Late Night Self-Pic

A lengthy Knesset debate lasted all hours of the night Monday, prompting many MKs and government employees to take the initiative of sleeping in their own offices, as opposed to driving home so late at night.

One such government official, however, decided it was a wonderful opportunity to promote his commitment to his job – what spells dedication to your work more than sleeping in your office? – by taking a bit of a racy self-pic, and posting it online for all to see. In the wake of the controversy surrounding the young female soldiers who posted some rather promiscuous images of themselves to Facebook, it seems the Yesh Atid rookie, MK Boaz Toporovsky, felt it was a decidedly good idea to join in on the action.

In his post to Facebook, the 33-year-old described the situation he was in – “4:51am – I’m going to sleep in my Knesset chambers” – confirmed by the somewhat intense stare Toporovsky seems to be offering in the image. “And now,” the caption continues, “sleeping in the Knesset for the first time, but there’s no point going home because the day is already beginning. I hope this won’t hurt too much… at least there’s a shower in my office.”

In the picture, Toporovsky looks bold and confident, though a tad sleepy, and seems to be unperturbed by the fact that an image of a Member of Knesset giving a bold stare while covered in a blanket doesn’t necessarily scream ‘class.’ It falls more in the school of 14-year-old girls on Instagram who post images of their slumber parties beside a caption that reads ‘girls just wanna have fun.’

It also doesn’t conjure an image of how one would expect a parliamentarian to behave.

Of course, Israel’s Facebook community was quick to respond to the image, and, as the photo is obviously ripe for parody, several digital mockeries and memes are already in circulation.

“Whoa, you’re sick in the head,” said one such Facebooker, Yoav Geier. “You’re an MK, you’re supposed to represent us, the citizens, and you take your picture like some 16-year-old girl? I really hope you’re drunk or you have a good excuse for this.”

At this point, no one in Israeli politics can predict the impact that Yesh Atid party will have in the Knesset, as, at this point, their greatest contributions have come in the form of gaffe’s like Toporovskys’s, including Yair Lapid’s advocacy of Facebook and social media vs. traditional media or Health Minister Yael German’s sarcastic comments on her online profile. Any event, social media seems to be getting all sorts of Israelis intro trouble these days.
