Man ‘Streaks’ Obama For $1 Million Stunt

From the Philadelphia Daily News:

For Dems: A winning streak?

October 11, 2010

WHILE PRESIDENT OBAMA came to a Germantown rally yesterday hoping for a winning streak, one man came and went streaking, hoping to win $1 million. The 24-year-old man from New York City, who had "www.Battlecam.com"; written on his chest, was charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and open lewdness, according to police.

We’re not sure why the cops didn’t nab Mr. Obama while they were at it.

Cops did not release his name, but Alki David [sic], the founder of Battlecam.com, said in a telephone interview that he knows the man as "King Vamp," a regular on his website. "King Vamp" apparently took David – a Nigerian-born billionaire of Greek Cypriot descent who lives in California – up on a challenge that he had posted on his site.

David said that he would give $1 million to the first person to streak (wearing only shoes) in front of Obama with the website written on his chest. The streaker also was required to shout out the name of the site six times and broadcast his actions on the site, David said.

This almost sounds like a religious ritual.

"I am a fan of Obama, this is not a slight on Obama at all," David told the Daily News last night.

It figures he would be an Obama fan.

"Streaking challenges are just classic, they usually get some attention and this is all about effective marketing."

David described Battlecam, which launched in September, as "an extreme website" that allows people to create their own broadcast channels and compete in everything from talent shows to cooking competitions.

Other users then vote to "like" something or "poop" it, he said…

We wish ‘King Vamp’ a lot of luck collecting his reward.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mr. David might not have too much extra cash to throw around once the networks are done with him:

Meet the billionaire the entire TV industry is suing

By Eriq Gardner

Get ready for a spectacular legal brawl — the big TV networks have just picked a fight with an eccentric billionaire.

On Friday, CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against FilmOn.com, which offers subscribers who pay $9.99 a month access to live high definition feeds of TV online

The company was founded and is being run by billionaire Alki David, an eccentric business magnate who has done a lot of odd jobs in his life, from checking bottle caps at a Coca Cola plant in Nigeria to starring and directing in various feature films. He launched FilmOn overseas a few years ago with about $68 million in funding, and now the company is listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange with a market cap of $567 million. Last week, the company announced its launch in the U.S.

David tells us that he has already hired lawyers and is "ready to bring it on." …

Somehow he sounds like an Obama fan.

    Oh this is like such karma for The Won – and seems to me like so what ‘his’ voters are really like.

    A stupid stunt (wasn’t streaking the thing when I was in college in the 70s) at a stupid speech (the only kind given by The Won lately) – and didn’t someone throw a book at Obama at this speech too? Man it was in his second term and by a foreigner to get to that point with evil booooooooosssssssh. [btw, where’s the change – Obama just seems like politics as usual, just on warp speed – and with a Administration full of Clinton leftovers – where is there any change at all?]

    So while Obie showed his a$$ on stage, there was someone else showing his a$$ in the audience. The only difference is King-Vamp actually knew he was going to show his. Oblamer can’t understand that he is showing his a$$ every time he opens his mouth.

    Alki David ain’t hard to figure out. From Nigeriqn bottle cap inspector to billionaire media mogul?

    I smell money laundering at an epic level.

    (Democrat money laundering. I wonder if part of his billion came from Andrew Cuomo looting HUD for $59 billion? Which has never been found …. )

    BTW, it’s looking as though this guy is a professional streaker (you know, the kind you find in the United Kingdom).
