British Billionaire Offers Huge Cash Reward for Obama Streaker

One of Britain’s wealthiest businessmen, eccentric filmmaker and actor Alki David is offering more than half a million pounds to the first person to run naked in front of Barack Obama.

The only condition is the streaker must have the name of David’s video website, Blattlecam.com, branded across their stomach.

The Nigerian-born prankster, best-known for his role in The Bank Job, says he’s received 160 ’serious’ applicants so far.

Speaking on Monday, David denied claims his publicity stunt would create a security risk for the US President.

He said: ‘I find most Americans are able to laugh at themselves. It is not as if there are any negative intentions. It is just a silly, outrageous prank which is not going to hurt anyone.

He added: ‘I have a huge amount of respect for the man. But in terms of promoting my product what can I say? Wrong president, wrong time.’
