Warning: watching "Gulstar" produces brain damage Israel today


Human stupidity, toxic masculinity and infected speech • A program that seeks attention, but only provides infantile content • It is not clear how reality-trash launches a tenth season • The hollow brand provides ground for acts of bullying, harassment, shaming and humiliation between adolescent men who want to feel superior

People who tell me "what a fun job you have - watching TV all day", forget that it includes watching "Gulstar".

This is a program that produces brain damage and flashbacks to being in high school and the reserves.

It's a real mystery how such weird reality-trash launched a tenth season this week, filmed in Morocco, and also brought Steve from "Beverly Hills 90210" into the next season.

In "Golstar" there is nothing but human stupidity interwoven with honor games, school humor, toxic masculinity and infected speech.

A program that seeks attention, but only provides infantile content.

A hollow brand.

Actually, "Golstar" is Kobi Suissa, hereinafter KS, who speaks in a strange voice and in the third person and calls himself "the brand".

This season, the guy was cast in the role of the on-duty jerk.

If you want - the new Doron Miren.

Being a jerk is a brand

Gag repeats about a razor

On the face of it, "Golstar Morocco" broadcasts a change of generations.

Eyal Golan is raising his son Liam this season, and they were joined on the trip by Eliraz Sade and other celebs who need exposure and are signed to the right agency.

A complete program in the spirit of Yaron Berald, who gets plenty of screen time to laugh at the stupidity of the "brand".

Like Golstar, KS is also a strange brand - open shirt, styled hair, self-humor and a recurring gag about a razor.

He utters syllables like "wish, wish", and resembles an abstract caricature of an underdeveloped character.

A broken human being, even half a human being.

Suisa was known to the public as the man on whose nipple Amir Hatzroni was comforted after he was hit in the face by a chair.

But KS is much more than just a nipple.

"This is an idiot. The chairman of the World Association of Idiots," Berald calls him throughout the episodes. "Enough, half my brain is already burned," KS shakes him, and Berald replies: "What brain?

You have nothing in your brain." When the participants got on the grass, Semyon Grafman crept up behind Suissa and put a cap on the back of his head, while Uri Breuer diagnosed: "He had a hair transplant, but he should have had a brain transplant."

Hallmark: laughing at the weak

They all serve the spirit of the production.

In the scene where they were handing out game uniforms, KS found out that the number minus 1 was printed on the back of his shirt, and was pissed off.

"I was offended for him," said Guy Hochman, "I think he is more than that. He is zero."

Later, when he missed in front of an empty goal, Eyal Golan barked at him: "You're minus 4, not minus 1. Ya shut up."

Later, Giovanni Rosso also took his hat off, and in karaoke he ran off the stage because Hochman threw a chair at him. Hard is the life of an idiot.

Hard is the life of the fool.

Guy Hochman,

But is Suissa a real person, or a TV character?

And basically, why does "Golstar" insist on portraying him as a moron and a boy?

Perhaps because it is the "Gulstari" brand, which serves as a ground for acts of bullying, harassment, shaming and humiliation between adolescent men who want to feel superior to the other.

In the past, violent confrontations between celebs have already taken place on the set (from Berld and Alex Morozov to Jonathan Rochefeld, Dean Miroshnikov and Itzik Zohar), and this time too things heated up.

It is clear what the agitation is from.

The teasing, the stings and the defiance are sometimes real and sometimes scripted, but the pain of humiliation burned.

When Berald explained to Suisa that if they put his brain in the head of a bird it would fly down - the "brand" chuckled uncomfortably, because there was no choice.

Even an idiot understands the double message.

Being dumb is a brand, and you get followers and money and reality TV, but being dumb means the joke is on the dumb, and bullying is part of the deal.

Laughing at the weak is the hallmark that made "Golstar" a brand.

Just like KS, not a brand worth being associated with.
