Alki David: British billionaire's $1m dare 'to person who streaks in front of Barack Obama

The billionaire heir to a shipping and bottle-plant empire, currently ranked 45th in the Sunday Times Rich List with an estimated fortune of £1.15 billion, made the pledge as part of a publicity stunt for a new website.

Almost three months ago the Nigerian born businessman, 42, established the Battlecam site, which offers people thousands of pounds if they perform, video and then upload crazy stunts.

As part of the site’s promotion Mr Alki, also an actor, producer and entrepreneur, initially offered $100,000 to the person who successfully streaked in front of the US President.

But on Tuesday, the Filmontv boss dramatically raised the stakes to $1 million (£639,000) after being told the prize money was “not enough” to warrant such a daring prank. The only catch is the person has to have the website's name scrawled across their stomach.

I wonder how many laws you would be breaking. But for $1m I'd do it.

For 1 million, I'd streak in front of anybody.
