X-Rated giant pulls the ultimate April Fool’s Day Prank

By Brittney MacDonald, Life & Style Editor


If you happened to desire a little “adult entertainment” this past April Fool’s Day, you might have gotten the shock of your life.

Known for their off-the-wall brand of humour and philanthropy—remember the “whack off for whales” stunt?—Canada’s own Pornhub decided to treat its vast number of viewers to a little fun and games on April Fool’s Day. In the spirit of the occasion, any user who clicked play on any of PornHub’s many—and diverse—options for video streaming was politely informed that they had linked their PornHub account to their social media accounts, and that any and all videos that they watched would be automatically shared via social media . In fact, the direct quote of the message was “No need to manually share your video to your friends and family ever again because this new revolutionary sharing feature does it for you! Automatically!”

Now, of course this was all a prank, as any user that clicked the button to reverse this “feature” was informed. But the damage was done; boners were killed, and previously moist panties became dryer than a desert at high noon. That’s a very unfortunate thing, but definitely worth the laugh—or at least PornHub thought so. I suppose when you’re one of the biggest names in the sex industry you can afford to delight AND terrify. In my opinion, this definitely beats out last year’s prank, when they became CornHub. You can probably guess what that prank entailed—yep, endless videos of corn on the cob. Just what everyone wants when they’re enjoying some “private time.”

    time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I want to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.
    Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article.

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you
    hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!

  3. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and
    feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  4. I do not even understand how I stopped up here, however I thought this submit used to be good.
    I do not recognise who you’re but definitely
    you’re going to a well-known blogger if you are not already.

  5. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my zynga group?

    enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  6. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  7. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

  8. I blog often and I truly thank you for your information. The article has really peaked my
