If the idea of Bar Refaeli baring all in a steamy video sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is.

The saucy supermodel made a short video clip for the Funny or Die comedy website in which she pleads for the funds to make “my real dream come true” — filming a sex tape. The tape, she assures viewers, will include plenty of sex, “with some dude,” in different positions, for “at least a few hours.”

“I know what you are thinking,” pouts Refaeli to camera. “Who would want to watch that? I’m not sure myself. But maybe a small audience might want to watch me having sex. After all, I’m really good at it.”

The video is a spoof of the kind of plea for finances that would-be entrepreneurs can post on the Kickstarter website in the hope of receiving financial pledges to realize their projects.

In her video, the Israeli model says she needs to raise $10,000 to buy top-quality equipment that will capture “my naked body perfectly.” Those willing to pledge $50 will get a signed photo of Bar having sex, “if you’re into that thing.” For $200, they can visit the set, she promises. And for $1,000 dollars, donors will be candidates to star in the film — “to be the lucky guy or girl” doing it with her. The shoot, she says, promises to be a “visceral portrait of the human body deep in lovers’ embrace.”

“Give what you can,” she implores.

Unsurprisingly, colossal spoof totals of $159,219,390 and $925,305,131 — depending on where you look on the site — have been pledged by Refaeli’s fictional would-be backers. The clip ends with Refaeli deluged in donations — the sex tape in jeopardy because, an on-screen graphic blares, she’s “TRAPPED in money pile!!!”

The Funny or Die website has produced spoof videos with other celebrities in the past, including Paris Hilton, Ben Stiller, and Lindsay Lohan.
