Well this is one way to make a name for yourself. After a late night Knesset debate Yesh Atid newbie MK Boaz Toporovsky decided to get a few hours of shut eye in his office. But, if something happens and it isn’t on Facebook does it even really happen? Maybe not in Toporovsky’s world, as the neophyte politician decided to turn his workplace stay into an after-hours photo shoot.

In a post on his Facebook page, the 33-year-old explained that he would be spending the night on his office couch–and provided evidence.

According to a translation provided by the Times of Israel, Toporovsky wrote in a caption below the picture: “4:51 a.m. — I’m going to sleep in my Knesset chambers.”

“And now,” he added, “sleeping in the Knesset for the first time, but there’s no point going home because the day is already beginning. I hope this won’t hurt too much… at least there’s a shower in my office.”
