Singer unamused by ‘Shrek 2’ joke

The Hebrew version of “Shrek 2" has been redubbed after an Israeli singer famed for his falsetto voice complained it implied he had been castrated, a representative for the movie’s producers said.

In its original Israeli dub, the hit animated comedy had one character threaten to emasculate another by saying “Let’s do a David Daor on him” -- referring to the contralto who represented the Jewish state at the Eurovision song contest this year.

Daor argued that the film would turn him into a laughingstock. A spokesman for the Tel Aviv District Court said it had decided in the singer’s favor.


A representative for the film’s producers in Israel said the changes had been ordered as soon as they got a letter from Daor’s lawyers.
