Produced by KAN DIGITAL, the official Israeli broadcasting body for the Eurovision Song Contest, this satirical video features Eurovision co-host, Lucy Ayoub, and Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation reporter, Elia Grinfeld, welcoming foreign visitors to Israel for the 2019 international competition. Receiving both praise and criticism, the edgy musical deals with stereotypes about Jews and Israel in a a self-deprecating manner. While some viewers felt it was humorous, showing that Israel knows how to laugh at its flaws, others felt it was offensive, even bordering on anti-Semitic.
