Paris Hilton Responds to McCain Celeb Commercial

Aug 5, 2008 7:07pm

ABC News’ Tahman Bradley Reports: Paris Hilton has issued a response (kinda) to presidential hopeful John McCain’s television commerial which lumps her together with Barack Obama and Britney Spears in the sometimes reviled celebrity category.

Sitting on a lawn chair in a bathing suit, Ms. Hilton says to camera, "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."

She continues, "But then that wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which I guess means that I’m running for president."

And so, since Hilton has interpreted the comparison to Sen. Obama, D-Ill., as meaning that she too is qualified to be leader of the free world, Hilton, jokingly, lays out her campaign platform.

The video has some more tough words for the "wrinkly white-haired" Arizona Senator: "He’s the oldest celebrity it the world, like super old. Old enough to remember when dancing was a sin and beer was served in a bucket.," a narrator says, with a picture of Larry King and then Yoda to drive home the age point.

McCain campaign spokesperson Tucker Bounds used word of the video to take a stinging swipe at Obama. "Sounds like Paris is taking the ‘All of the Above’ energy approach that John McCain has advocated — both alternatives and drilling. Perhaps the reality is that Paris has a more substantive energy plan than Barack Obama," Bounds said in a statement.

The video is posted on the user-driven video site backed by Will Ferrel and Adam McKay, FunnyOrDie.com. Watch it HERE
