A Purim holiday-themed video from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged Israelis to get vaccinated against COVID-19, after allaying the concerns about the shot from a series of costumed characters.

“We have mishloach manot (Purim treats), first dose, second dose — roll-up your sleeves, everyone gets vaccinated,” says Netanyahu through a megaphone, while manning a vaccine station in a basketball gym.

An actor cycling through a series of costumes lobs common worries about the vaccine at the prime minister. “I’ve heard it changes your DNA; I might grow a tail,” he says, while dressed as a dog.

“Why vaccinate everyone? What’s your interest? You want to implant a microchip?” he asks as a tech-themed superhero covered in keyboards.
