Jerusalem (CNN) -- Grainy surveillance footage picks up a woman wearing a large hat approaching the freezer section in a supermarket.
She looks around furtively before picking up what looks like a bag of frozen peas. A simple shopper looking for low prices? No. It's a scene from a new commercial inspired by something more serious: the now infamous surveillance video showing suspected assassins stalking a Hamas leader in Dubai.
"We call it an assassination of prices!" said Sefi Shaked, the director of the TV ad for Israeli supermarket chain Mahsaney Kimat Hinam. "We are shooting everything through the security cameras of the supermarket."
The new commercial features actors dressed like the suspects seen in surveillance footage released by Dubai police, who say their video shows assassins following Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a hotel where he was killed in January.
As Dubai authorities blamed Israel for the hit, Israeli marketing minds saw a business opportunity.
"The objective is to get sales from excellent prices as well as to put a smile on the customer's face," said supermarket marketing director Yossi Maimon.
"I hope they will also start buying our products in Dubai," added supermarket owner Adi Zim.
A spoof of the Dubai hotel security footage would not be complete without the men in tennis gear. In the supermarket ad, the two men seen following al-Mabhouh as he checked on his room turn into a man with a tennis racket over his shoulder checking out the frozen food section.
During the recent Jewish holiday of purim where people traditionally dress up, one of the favorite costumes was none other than tennis gear.
