English comedian Ricky Gervais has penned a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama asking him for help in making an exchange between Victoria Beckham and Paris Hilton.
Gervais, who is worried about Hilton’s house hunting near his London home, wrote the letter to Obama asking for a trade and then posting it on his website.
In the letter, he explained that Hilton is “out and about integrating herself with the Great British public.”
“Mr. President. We are not stupid. This is clearly a retaliatory strike for Posh Spice (Beckham) moving to L.A. I know it, and you know it, so let’s cut the ‘it’s a free country’ nonsense and come to some agreement,” Contactmusic quoted him as writing.
“This is how it would work. We call them both and tell them that we’ve found a giant ‘paparazzi nest’ in New York... The thought of that many photographers in one place will be irresistible.
“Once we get them there, while they are having their photos taken... we will swap their limos around. It’s fool proof.
“Have your people call my people. They may have to call a few times as my people are useless to be honest,” he added.
