The Bibisitter

An Israeli campaign commercial. Thought you might get a kick out of it. The references to Buji and Tzipi are to Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni, Netanyahu’s opponents, who would rotate as prime minister if their alliance won.

  1. Oh, that’s good. I’ll vote for “Bibi-sitter” any day.

    Tzipi: the baby’s nappy needs changed
    Buje: I’m on formula duty, so you do it
    Tzipe: uh, where did Bibi leave the clean nappies?

  2. The reference to Yitzhak (Buji) Herzog ..”he’ll give away the carpets” was a play on words in Hebrew on carpets and territories-they sound alike.
    It was a very clever ad.

  3. That warmed my heart! I loved that last line

    Peace. But not unconditionally!
