    Ricky Gervais is tweeting at E! News.

    After the official E! News Twitter account asked for followers to send their suggestions for the #HottieOfTheWeek, Gervais decided to have a little social media fun, and we can't help but commend the comedian on his silly behavior.

    "Who do you want to see as our #HottieOfTheWeek? Tweet us with your pick: The winner will be announced on this Friday's show!" the original E! News tweet read.

    To which the Invention of Lying star replied: "'@ENews: Who do you want to see as our #HottieOftheWeek? The winner will be announced on this Friday's show!' Surely I'll win this week?"

    And of course, we couldn't help but tweet back at the 52-year-old actor, "@rickygervais We haven't forgotten about you, Ricky. But we're gonna need an updated bikini pic #JustSayin."

    Which, (as we should know), only provoked the British funnyman more:

    "I'll go one better...," Gervais wrote back.

    The tweet was accompanied by a seriously questionable twitpic of himself where he seems to be missing his front teeth, crossing his eyes and putting his man cleavage on full display in a bathtub.

    "Well played, Gervais," E! News replied. "Can you DM us the name of your photographer?"

    "Haha. That would be my poor girlfriend @thejanefallon," he confessed.

    The isn't the first time the comedian has given a shout-out to E! News via the social media site.

    Back in January, Gervais tweeted a shirtless photo of himself (where he's seemingly trying to appear as chubby as possible), captioning the unflattering pic, "@eonline This is what I'll be wearing during The Golden Globes. Does this finally get me on your best dressed list?," he wrote.

    Prior to the silly shot, Gervais also joked he was giving up his Golden Globe hosting gig due to the fact he failed to land on E!'s Fashion Police Best Dressed List.

    "Good luck to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes. After failing three years in a row to make E! Channel's Best Dressed list, I decided to hand over the reins," Gervais said in a statement to EW at the time. "Let me know if you run out of Scientology gags." 

    Gotta love him!
