On Sunday night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went to a soccer game and pointed.
This simple act set the internet alight with laughter. Users across social media created memes mocking the prime minister as he took a few hours away from the embattled world of politics to watch Israel's national team beat Bosnia-Herzegovina in the Euro 2016 match at Sammy Ofer stadium in Haifa.
Prior to the match, Netanyahu, who is an avid doodler, posted a drawing of a soccer player next to a goal with the caption "Good luck tonight to our team!"
The drawing was quickly ridiculed by a couple of netizens. Twitter user Lucy responded by drawing a player holding up an empty plate and wrote "Good luck tonight to our hungry citizens!"
In another response to the drawing, Facebook user Orit Kopel grimly dressed up a player as an ISIS terrorist using a beheaded captive's head as the soccer ball.
Channel 2 News's political correspondent Amit Segal later tweeted "Bibi at the stadium. Let's announce the elections and get it over with."
Artist Amir Schiby wrote "Hail caesar!" along with a picture of Netanyahu, wearing a laurel wreath, overlooking a bloody gladiator arena.
Inspired by pop culture, Rafael Saban put Netanyahu into the famous E.T.
scene, while Idan Birenberg went classic with Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam
. Gal Tadmor went trashy with Kim Kardashian's Internet-breaking buttocks.
Lastly, Facebook funny guy Ivgeni Zarubinski portrayed Netanyahu casting a finger-shaped shadow over the upper lip of Minister of Finance Yair Lapid, who was also at the stadium wearing a blue and white cowboy hat.
It was mocking another viral hit that happened after Netanyahu inadvertently yet notoriously
cast a shadow over German Chancellor Angela Merkel's face during her visit to Jerusalem earlier this year.
