Israel, a country known for its progressive gender politics and embrace of female sexuality, apparently draws the line at three Bar Refaelis having sex with a purple puppet. One Bar? Maybe. Two? Possibly. But three?

A local TV commercial for fashion brand Hoodies, which debuted Sunday in the holy land, has been limited to air only past primetime, Walla! Israel news website reported Sunday.
