After seven years as Israel’s president and fifty-five years in politics, Shimon Peres is looking for a job. And in a satirical, five-minute video, his granddaughter, Israeli columnist and screenwriter Mika Almog, shows how hard it can be.

The video debuted to laughter Sunday night at the Atlantic Council’s Global Citizen Awards dinner in New York City, where Peres was among the Council’s honorees this year. Peres plays alongside Israeli actors, flunking out of jobs as a gas station attendant, security guard and grocery clerk, mainly because he keeps lecturing everyone on what he’s learned in life—the need for compromise in negotiations, and discipline in special operations missions. At the video’s end, he’s having somewhat better luck–as a sky-diving instructor.
