PornHub offered to plow anyone that emailed them.

In an attempt to bolster their public image and be philanthropic, PornHub sent out a fleet of trucks to plow snow for residents in Boston, New Jersey, and New York following Storm Stella. The website used a punny phrase on Twitter, offering to help followers “get plowed,” which caused an uproar in laughter and support as people requested their services throughout the hardest hit cities.

“The PornHub team understands that by this time of year, most cities have run up their budget in snow removal,” PornHub Vice President Corey Price told Boston Magazine, “and we thought we’d lend a hand in getting our fans plowed.”

As inappropriate as it might be, the gesture was all in good fun and the site really did help out a lot of people who were still snowed in and whose living and work areas had not yet been plowed. With the budget being exhausted and the regular plows working overtime throughout the state, PornHub actually provided a much-needed service. They offered it much in the way their content online is offered as well—for free.

The site sent out two dozen trucks in all and are offering to plow the parking lots for small businesses on demand, although they aren’t plowing personal driveways. Fear not, PornHub doesn’t plan on blowing their load (their phrasing) in one day—they have announced that they intend to send the fleet to other areas around the country that have exhausted their snow plow budget.

This is a great marketing campaign, although we’re pretty sure PornHub was not hurting for viewers prior to this publicity stunt. While it may not have brought in new viewers, it certainly helped their own public image in showcasing one of the many ways the company tries to give back. The site runs philanthropic campaigns every so often, such as their “Panda Style” campaign, which started on Thursday, and gives back to Pandas by donating to their conservation.
