Bar Refaeli ad deemed too sexy to air on daytime Israeli TV

Watching not one, not two, but three Bar Refaelis simulate sex with a puppet is apparently too hot for Israeli daytime television.

The country's government banned a commercial for a fashion brand that featured the former Sports Illustrated cover girl — and two clones of her — spending a sultry day with a puppet named Roy Orbach.

While the commercial doesn't actually show anything explicit, the Second Authority for Television and Radio said the spot has "too many sexual insinuations," and barred it from airing it before 10 p.m.

The ad has racked up more than 15,000 views on YouTube, so at least not all of its money was wasted. --Jordan Valinsky
