I couldn’t think of a more perfect woman to star in an underwear commercial than Sports Illustrated model Bar Refaeli. But a recent ad she did for Hoodies, a men’s underwear line, was deemed too hot for daytime TV in her native Israel. The premise of the commercial is simple — well, not simple, exactly.
