The controversial Likud MK Oran Hazan, recently suspended from the Knesset for six months, has had to find other ways to amuse himself. He is now appearing in a music video released Sunday.

The song, “Star,” by boy-band Eve and Lear, features Hazan as a teacher, who turns his classroom of teenagers into a disco.

In the video clip, Hazan takes a selfie with a statue as the students arrive for his lecture, lightheartedly mocking his infamous selfie with US President Donald Trump, which led to a change in government protocol.

The video, which after 24 hours had almost 100,000 views, also features model Nataly Dadon as a mini-skirted, pouting student, who Hazan raps on her bare knees.

Hazan shared the video on his Facebook page, adding that, “I always dreamed of being a teacher,” and thanking Eve and Lear for allowing him to fulfill that dream.

Eve and Lear is a group made up of brothers Tzachi and Eliron Buzaglo who have had a string of hits on YouTube and social media.

Last month Hazan, a freshman lawmaker, began a six-month suspension, ordered by the Knesset Ethics Committee for insulting MKs.

Hazan, who entered the Knesset in the last election, has become known as the enfant terrible of Israel’s parliament.

Shortly after Hazan went into politics, Channel 2 News reported that he had hired prostitutes for his friends and taken crystal meth, while managing a casino in Bulgaria in 2013. He sued journalist Amit Segal for libel, but the court rejected the bulk of the lawsuit, saying the report amounted to “responsible, serious journalism and reflected the reality as it was.”

Since entering the Knesset, Hazan has been indicted for assault, publicly mocked a disabled colleague, and has been temporarily banned from the Knesset multiple times over various wrongdoings.
