Paris Hilton expressed her desire to campaign against “that wrinkly white-haired guy” and threatening to paint the White House pink if elected.
The hotel heiress responded to Republican candidate John McCain’s controversial use of her image in a campaign television spot last week with a satirical ad of her own posted on the website Funnyordie.com.
In the ad, the 27-year-old singer appears reclining on a sun lounger beside a swimming pool, dressed only in a skimpy leopard-print bathing costume.
Paris Hilton said: “Hey America, I’m Paris Hilton and I’m a celebrity too. Only I’m not from the olden days and I’m not promising change like that other guy. I’m just hot! But then that wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which I guess means I’m running for president. So thanks for the endorsement white-haired dude, and I want America to know I’m, like, totally ready to lead.”
The â€œStars Are Blindâ€ singer offers an alternative US energy strategy and plans of mixing the elements of John McCain and Democratic rival Barack Obama’s policy platforms, saying: “We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars. … Energy crisis solved, I’ll see you at the debates, b***hes!”
The singer continued: “I’m thinking Rihanna. I’ll see you at the White House. Oh, and I might paint it pink. Bye!”
In Paris Hilton’s spoof campaign commercial, a gravel-voiced narrator takes aim at McCain, asking: “He’s the oldest celebrity in the world. Like, super old. Old enough to remember when dancing was a sin, and beer was served in a bucket. But is he ready to lead?”
Adam McKay, who was one of those people that pitched the idea of filming the spot to Paris Hilton, revealed: “She got it that the McCain thing was a low blow. And she felt she didn’t want to return it with angry fire, and that this was the best way to respond. It’s a playful jab.”
