Defense Minister Benny Gantz embraced the mockery of him on Friday after he was seen opening a water bottle with his teeth on Wednesday.

During the live coverage of the arrival of US President Joe Biden for his official visit to Israel on Wednesday, the camera was on Gantz when he sat down in his seat and attempted to open a bottle of water with his teeth and struggled to succeed. 

Following this footage, Gantz faced much ridicule on social media as people made fun of his interesting method for opening bottles.

On Friday, Gantz posted a video on his social media accounts, joining in on in the amusement.

In the video someone off-screen asks Gantz if he has a can opener, and Gantz responds with "what can opener? give it to me." He then takes the can and pretends to open it with his teeth.

"Can openers are for the weak."
