WATCH: When Bibi Netanyahu Met Aerosmith

Following their successful concert Wednesday night, rock legends Aerosmith met with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu – who proved that bad song puns are not the sole province of bloggers and The Times of Israel.

And Bibi was not alone. Natan Sharansky, Jewish Agency chairman, one-upped him.

The Jewish Agency for Israel invited Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler to apply to immigrate to Israel after the rocker said during his concert “I’m making aliyah!”

“Walk this way – to a Jewish Agency shaliach,” said Natan Sharansky, Jewish Agency chairman of the executive, in a statement, noting one of the group’s biggest hits and using the Hebrew word for emissary. “While some believe the Israeli experience entails living on the edge, life in Israel puts one back in the saddle of Jewish history, and we know Mr. Tyler doesn’t want to miss a thing. Theodor Herzl said that if you will it, it is no dream. Mr. Tyler no longer has to dream on.”
