Global, Israel, Mishegas

and the Golden Calf award goes to…

Well, Waltz With Bashir did not win an Oscar this year, but Rafael, the Israeli defense manufacturer, managed to win an Iron Eagle from Wired Magazine for the “most atrocious defense video of all time.”

Rafael actually defended the video saying:

Rafael is constantly trying to demonstrate innovation and creativity not only in the field of defense technology,… In every international fair we launch a film that corresponds with the local culture. In Brazil, for example, our clip revolved around soccer. Over the past few years, we have won first prize for design and production almost annually.

Has Israel has jumped the shark?
