The former Maxim cover girl, 30, who is now expecting her first child with husband Adi Ezra, prances around in the 45-second advertisement to promote Hoodies swimwear. The clip includes what would be typically found in any swimsuit ad: shots of the model frolicking on the beach, strutting her runway walk and showing off her curves while getting a tan.
So what may have caused Israel to yank the commercial from primetime? Some of the edgier segments include close-ups of Refaeli’s bum, the stunner getting hosed down in an outdoor shower and the star not wearing her bikini bottoms — although her body was hidden behind a truck at the time.
According to The Times of Israel, the Second Broadcasting Authority for Television and Radio requested that several scenes be cut in order for the commercial to air in Refaeli’s native country. However, despite the reworking, the advertisement can still only be shown after 10 p.m.
But here in America, the model’s sizzling reel can be watched over and over again. Check it out above!
