Lohan makes internet dating video

15 April 09 08:43 GMT

Actress Lindsay Lohan has filmed a spoof dating advert, shortly after her split with girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

"I'm a workaholic, a shopaholic and according to the state of California, an alcoholic," said the actress in the skit for comedy website Funnyordie.com.

"We'll crash a few parties, a car or two," continues "newly single" Lohan, who is on probation for drink driving.

Lohan went public with her relationship with Ronson - the sister of Brit Award winner Mark - last September.

Underwear

In the wake of their break-up, Lohan appeared on the front cover of Us magazine, and said she was "so alone".

The 22-year-old makes reference to this by sitting on a sofa and reading the magazine during the video.

Lohan jokes that she is looking for someone to spend the rest of her life with, "or at least the rest of my probation with".

She concludes her pretend pitch for a new partner by saying: "I never lose my Google hits, just my underwear."

Lohan's video is a parody of adverts that appear on internet dating site eHarmony, complete with wayward camera work.

The Funnyordie website was created by comic and film star Will Ferrell.

Last year it hosted a spoof video showing Paris Hilton hitting back at US presidential candidate John McCain after he referred to her in one of his campaign ads.
